The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the website 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 an Internet site, for instance, and you type in the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is retrieved, so that you can see the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you register a domain name within a cloud web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domain addresses at the same time, which could save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a huge number of domain names that you would like to point to an alternative provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We permit you to set up private name servers for each domain address registered with our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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