The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of 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 website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for instance, and you type in the URL, the Internet 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 hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, so you can look at the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

The outstanding Hepsia CP, which comes with our website hosting products, will allow you to control the name servers of each and every domain name registered through us with just a few mouse clicks, so even if you have never had a hosting plan or a domain name before, you will not encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and will enable you to change the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain addresses all at once. We also offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for any domain name registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you'll 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 name to their system. Unlike other providers, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for any domain address that's registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few clicks through the sophisticated, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as easy to view the current NS records for a specific domain name and to check if they are the ones that are required for the domain address to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to manage any domain effortlessly even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain under which they are set up, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host inside the very same account. This option is very handy if you have customers of your own and you wish their sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available absolutely free.
