The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the web 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 wish to open a site, for example, and you insert the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so you can view the content from the correct location. Ordinarily 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 Shared Website Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain address registered inside a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you merely seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of numerous domain names at once when you need to point them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer procedure won't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you would like to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company website, for instance, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account as well, not only the one they are created for.

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to handle the NS records of each domain address registered within it with ease.

The section where you will find your domain addresses isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a several mouse clicks. You will also be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain names uses currently and if they are the ones needed to forward that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your site, especially when it's a business one, and you may use these name servers for any other domain that you'd like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
