The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails 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 website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for instance, and you input the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is obtained, allowing you to look at the content from the proper location. Normally a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

If you use a Linux shared web hosting service from our us and you include a new domain address in the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you're going to be able to manage its NS records easily through the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for several domain addresses at a time with several mouse clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to control your domain even if it is the first one you've ever registered. It takes only a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to forward a domain to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any company that you would like the new NS records to direct to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain name in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any issues even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many different domain names in the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you a great deal of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the proper ones or not as a way for the domain address to be forwarded to the account that you have on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
