The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be pointed 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 Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, allowing you to see the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Web Hosting

The outstanding Hepsia Control Panel, offered with with our web hosting products, allows you to take care of the name servers of each domain address registered through our company with only a couple of clicks, so even if you haven't had a website hosting plan or a domain name before, you simply won't encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it'll allow you to change the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain addresses simultaneously. We also provide you with the opportunity to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to forward the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to point the domain address to their system. Unlike other providers, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

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