The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting company 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 wish to open a website, for example, and you enter the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is obtained, so you can see the content from the proper location. Commonly a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
In the event you register a domain name in a shared website hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers with ease. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain names at once, which will save you time and efforts if you have a lot of domains you want to direct to another service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. In addition we allow you to set up private name servers for every domain name registered via our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for any domain name that is registered through us can be changed with no more than a few clicks using the sophisticated, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to view the current NS records for a particular domain and to determine if they're the ones that are required for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to manage any domain name effortlessly even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can also register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain name under which they're set up, but also for any other domain name that you might want to host inside the very same account. This feature is very handy when you have customers of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available totally free.
