The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain name 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 site, for example, and you enter 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the site is obtained, so that you can look at the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to handle its name servers with ease. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain addresses at once, which will save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a huge number of domain addresses that you'd like to redirect to a different provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We also permit you to create private name servers for every single domain name registered with our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with incredibly user-friendly interface, that will permit you to control your domains with ease even when you have never used a web hosting account or a domain up to now. Changing the NS records for any domain address registered using our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are correct or not as to point that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and requires only several mouse clicks. You are also going to be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain addresses as a part of the free DNS management services that we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for each and every domain that you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their sites, using this feature is going to give you a lot more credibility as a business.
