The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for example, and you insert the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, enabling you to view the content from the right location. Normally a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

If you use a Linux shared hosting from our us and you register a new domain name inside the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you will be able to manage its NS records with ease using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a number of domain names at once with several mouse clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to control your domain address even if it is the first you've ever registered. It takes simply a click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of every provider that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for every single domain name that is registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the sophisticated, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to view the current NS records for a specific domain and to determine if they are the ones that are required for the domain name to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to control any domain address easily even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain name under which they're set up, but also for any other domain name that you would like to host within the exact same account. This option is very useful if you have clients of your own and you want their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available totally free.
