The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a site, for instance, and you input the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can see the content from the correct location. Usually a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.

NS Records in Web Hosting

If you use a Linux web hosting from our us and you add a new domain address within the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you're going to be able to handle its NS records with ease using the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes 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 domains at a time with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to handle your domain name even if it is the first you have ever registered. It requires merely a click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each and every provider that you would like the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain address which is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few clicks from the advanced, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to view the current NS records for a particular domain address and to determine if they're the ones that are required for the domain to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to handle any domain name with ease even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain name under which they are created, but also for any other domain name that you would like to host inside the same account. This feature is very handy when you have clients of your own and you want their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available totally free.
