The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting provider 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 want to open a website, for example, and you type in the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is retrieved, so that you can see the content from the right location. Normally a domain 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 Shared Web Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our shared web hosting plans, will allow you to take care of the name servers of any domain name registered through us with only a few mouse clicks, so even though you may have never had a web hosting plan or a domain address before, you won't encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and will allow you to modify the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain addresses all at once. We also offer you the ability to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each and every domain address registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to direct the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to redirect the domain to their system. In contrast to other providers, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with extremely user-friendly interface, that will enable you to control your domain addresses with ease even when you have not used a hosting account or a domain before. Changing the NS records for each domain address registered with our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are correct or not as to point that domain name to our cloud hosting platform is also quite easy and requires only several clicks. You'll also 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 which we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their sites, employing this feature is going to give you more credibility as a business.
