The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the website (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 hosting provider and for any Internet domain 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 insert the URL, the 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, enabling you to 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 contrast between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Hosting
When you use a Linux hosting from our company and you add a new domain name in the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you'll be able to handle its NS records effortlessly via the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for several domains simultaneously with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to manage your domain even if it's the first you've ever registered. It requires merely a click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for each of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each provider that you would like the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to handle the NS records of each domain address registered within it easily. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can handle everything relevant to your web presence, offers a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section in which you will find all your domains isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a few mouse clicks. You are also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain names uses presently and if they're the ones needed to point that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we give 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 website, especially if it is a business one, and you may use these name servers for any other domain name which you want to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
