The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for instance, and you input the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the web site is retrieved, allowing you to look at the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you use a Linux cloud hosting from our company and you register a new domain in the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you're going to be able to control its NS records with ease via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for a number of domain names at the same time with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to control your domain name even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It requires merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain to the hosting space on our end and with a few clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each and every company that you want the new NS records to direct to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for any domain name that's registered through us can be changed with no more than a few clicks from the sophisticated, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to see the current NS records for a given domain name and to determine if they are the ones that are needed for the domain name to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to control any domain address easily even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they are created, but also for any other domain address that you'd like to host inside the same account. This feature is very handy when you have clients of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
