The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want 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 redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

When you use a Linux cloud hosting from our company and you include a new domain in the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you will be able to control its NS records easily via the Hepsia website hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for a group of domain addresses at a time 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 easy to handle your domain name even if it's the first one you've ever registered. It takes merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to direct a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of every provider that you'd like the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for any domain address that's registered through us could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the leading-edge, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as easy to see the current NS records for a given domain name and to verify if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to manage any domain easily even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you can even register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain name under which they are created, but also for any other domain address that you'd like to host in the very same account. This option is very handy if you have clients of your own and you would like their sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available absolutely free.
