The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any 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 want to open a site, for example, 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 redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, so you can look at the content from the right location. Normally a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
The innovative Hepsia CP, which comes with our shared web hosting products, will allow you to deal with the name servers of each and every domain name registered through us with only a few mouse clicks, so even when you have never had a web hosting plan or a domain before, you'll not encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and will enable you to edit the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain names together. Additionally we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each domain name registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to direct the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to redirect the domain address to their system. In contrast to other companies, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to control the NS records of each domain address registered within it without difficulty. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything related to your web presence, comes with a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section in which you will find all your domains isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain name and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a few clicks. You'll also be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain names uses at the moment and if they're the ones needed to forward that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com 100% free. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly when it is a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain address that you would like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
