The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so you can see the content from the correct location. Ordinarily a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll be able to manage its name servers effortlessly. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domains at the same time, which could save you time and efforts when you have a huge number of domain names that you would like to point to a different provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Furthermore we permit you to set up private name servers for every domain name registered using our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider 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 Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with highly user-friendly interface, that will enable you to handle your domain names easily even when you haven't used a hosting account or a domain name previously. Changing the NS records for any domain registered with our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are right or not as to forward that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also very simple and takes just a few clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under every one of your domain names as an element of the free DNS administration services which we offer with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain which you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their websites, employing this feature is going to give you much more credibility as a business.
