The Name Servers of a domain name point out 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 (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for example, and you enter the URL, the 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 provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so you can see the content from the correct location. Normally a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Hosting
In case you register a domain name inside a hosting
account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names at the same time, which can save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a lot of domains that you'd like to direct to an alternative service provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We also permit you to create private name servers for each domain registered using our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for instance, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you invest in a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you will be able to control the NS records of any domain name registered inside it without difficulty. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool where you can manage everything related to your web presence, offers a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section where you will find all your domains isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain address and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a few mouse clicks. You are also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain addresses uses presently and if they're the ones needed to direct that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com totally free. This will give more credibility to your website, especially if it is a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain address that you might want to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
