The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, for example, and you input the URL, the web 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 obtained, enabling you to view the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud hosting plans, will allow you to deal with the name servers of each and every domain registered through us with just a couple of clicks, so even when you have not had a website hosting plan or a domain before, you simply won't encounter any difficulties. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it'll enable you to edit the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain names together. In addition we give you the chance to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every domain name registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple 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 forward the domain to their system. Different from other providers, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain name within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have multiple domain names in the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which can save you a lot of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain address to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
