The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for example, and you insert the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, enabling you to see the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Hosting

If you register a domain name in a hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with only a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain names at the same time, which will save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a huge number of domain names that you'd like to forward to an alternative service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. Furthermore we permit you to create private name servers for every domain name registered via our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for instance, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domain addresses inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the correct ones or not as a way for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you've got on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
