The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain address to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for instance, 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 forwarded to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can see the content from the correct location. Ordinarily a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you register a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain names at once, which will save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a huge number of domain names that you'd like to redirect to another service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We allow you to create private name servers for any domain name registered through our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with highly user-friendly interface, which will allow you to handle your domain names without difficulty even if you have not used a web hosting account or a domain address previously. Changing the NS records for each domain address registered through our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are accurate or not as to point that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also very simple and requires only a couple of mouse clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain names as a part of the free DNS administration services which we offer you 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 address which you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their websites, using this feature is going to give you more credibility as a business.
