The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, for instance, and you enter the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the correct location. Usually a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our shared website hosting packages, will allow you to control the name servers of every domain name registered through us with simply a couple of mouse clicks, so even if you haven't had a website hosting plan or a domain address before, you simply won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with 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. We provide you with the ability 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 are going to use the child NS to point the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to forward the domain to their system. Different from other providers, we don't charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for each and every domain name which is registered through us can be changed with no more than a few clicks using the leading-edge, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to see the current NS records for a particular domain name and to determine if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain address to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to manage any domain easily even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain under which they're created, but also for any other domain address that you'd like to host within the very same account. This feature is very handy if you have customers of your own and you would like their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
