The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain 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 in the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so you can look at the content from the proper location. Normally a domain address 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

The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our shared hosting products, allows you to deal with the name servers of each domain registered through our company with just a few mouse clicks, so even though you may have not had a web hosting plan or a domain name before, you won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and it will allow you to change the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain names simultaneously. In addition we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers and for each and every domain name registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to forward the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you will use the new records to direct the domain address to their system. Different from other companies, we don't charge more 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 provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domains inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the proper ones or not in order for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you've got on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
