The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that manages the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for instance, and you insert 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 company where the A record of the website is obtained, allowing you to look at the content from the correct location. Normally a domain 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 Cloud Website Hosting

The outstanding Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud website hosting products, will enable you to handle the name servers of each domain registered through us with simply a couple of mouse clicks, so even if you have not had a website hosting plan or a domain name before, you won't encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and will enable you to edit the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domains together. In addition we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain name registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you'll use the child NS to point 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 redirect the domain address 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 invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to control the NS records of every domain name registered within it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can handle everything associated with your web presence, offers a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section where you will find your domain addresses is not an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a couple of clicks. You're also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain names uses at the moment and if they are the ones needed to direct that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your web site, especially if it's a business one, and you could use these name servers for any other domain address which you want to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
