The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider 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 wish to open a website, for instance, and you input the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, allowing you to look at the content from the proper location. Usually a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

If you use a cloud website hosting from our us and you register a new domain in the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you'll be able to manage its NS records easily through the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for several domains at the same time with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it easy to handle your domain address even if it's the first one you've ever registered. It takes just a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with a few clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any company that you would like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain name inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domain addresses within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a lot of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain address to be directed to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
