The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any 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 an Internet site, for instance, and you type the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, allowing you to look at the content from the right location. Usually a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Web Hosting
In the event you register a domain name within a web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain addresses at once, which will save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a large number of domains you want to redirect to another provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. We enable you to set up private name servers for each and every domain registered through our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for example, all domains added to 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'll be able to control the NS records of each domain name registered in it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to deal with everything associated with your web presence, comes with a very simple and intuitive interface. The section in which you will find all of your domain addresses isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You'll also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain addresses uses currently and if they're the ones required to direct that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your website, especially if it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address that you'd like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
