The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The Internet protocol address 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) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded 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 sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is obtained, enabling you to view the content from the correct location. Usually a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Hosting
The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our hosting plans, will permit you to handle the name servers of each and every domain registered through our company with only a few mouse clicks, so even though you may have never had a web hosting plan or a domain before, you'll not encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and it will allow you to change the NS records of any domain or even a number of domains together. We offer you the chance to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each domain address registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to forward the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to forward the domain address to their system. Unlike other companies, we don't charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with extremely user-friendly interface, which will enable you to handle your domain names with ease even when you have never used a web hosting account or a domain before. Changing the NS records for each domain registered with our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are correct or not as to forward that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also quite easy and takes as little as a few mouse clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under every one of your domain addresses as a part of the free DNS administration services that we offer you with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for any domain address which you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their sites, employing this feature will give you far more credibility as a business.
