The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for example, and you insert the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can see the content from the proper location. Normally a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you register a domain name in a cloud web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain addresses at once, which can save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a lot of domain addresses that you would like to direct to another provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We also permit you to set up private name servers for each and every domain registered using our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any issues even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have a number of domain addresses in the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you lots of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the right ones or not in order for the domain to be pointed to the account which you have on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to create private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for every other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
