The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain address to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for example, and you type in the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, so you can look at the content from the right location. Ordinarily 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 Shared Hosting
If you use a Linux shared hosting package from our company and you include a new domain name inside the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you'll be able to control its NS records easily through the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a number of domain addresses at once with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to manage your domain even if it is the first one you've ever registered. It takes merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to forward a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a few mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each and every company that you want the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with extremely user-friendly interface, which will help you manage your domain names with ease even if you haven't used a hosting account or a domain address previously. Changing the NS records for each and every domain registered with our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are right or not as to forward that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and requires only a couple of mouse clicks. You are also going to be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain names as an element of the free DNS management services we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for any domain name you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their sites, employing this feature will give you much more credibility as a business.
