The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages 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 web hosting provider and for any domain address to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for instance, and you type the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, allowing you to view the content from the right location. Commonly a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
The innovative Hepsia CP, offered with with our shared hosting products, allows you to handle the name servers of each and every domain registered through us with just a few clicks, so even when you have not had a hosting plan or a domain name before, you will not encounter any difficulties. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and will enable you to edit the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domains simultaneously. We also offer you the opportunity to create child name servers and for each domain address registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you'll use the child NS to forward the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you will use the new records to point the domain address to their system. In contrast to other companies, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain name inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have several domains in the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which will save you quite a lot of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the correct ones or not in order for the domain to be directed to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for any other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
