The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the 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 wish to open an Internet site, for instance, and you type in the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, enabling you to see the content from the proper location. Usually a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Web Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered within a web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you just seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of numerous domain addresses at the same time when you would like to direct them all to the same hosting company. Identical steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform as the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company website, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account too, besides the one they're created for.

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with incredibly user-friendly interface, that will allow you to control your domain addresses effortlessly even when you have not used a hosting account or a domain address in the past.

You will also be able to register child name servers under every one of your domain addresses as an element of the free DNS control 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 every domain you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their sites, employing this feature is going to give you a lot more credibility as a business.
