The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails 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 hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for instance, and you type in the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, so you can view the content from the right location. Commonly a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.

NS Records in Website Hosting

The outstanding Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our website hosting plans, will allow you to deal with the name servers of any domain name registered through us with simply a few mouse clicks, so even if you haven't had a website hosting plan or a domain address before, you'll not encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it'll allow you to modify the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain names all at once. In addition we provide you with the ability to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for any domain address registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you'll use the child NS to forward the domain address 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. In contrast to other companies, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for every single domain address that's registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few clicks through the sophisticated, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to view the current NS records for a given domain and to verify if they are the ones that are necessary for the domain 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 handle any domain with ease even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you can also 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 name that you might want to host inside the same account. This option is very handy when you have clients of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is free of charge.
