The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for example, and you input the URL, the Internet 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 hosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, allowing you to look at the content from the correct location. Usually 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 Hosting

If you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even several domains at once, which can save you considerable time and efforts when you have a large number of domains you want to point to a different service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. Additionally we permit you to create private name servers for every single domain name registered with our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any problems even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many different domain addresses within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the proper ones or not in order for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
