The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, for example, and you enter the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, so that you can see the content from the correct location. Normally a domain 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 Cloud Web Hosting
The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our cloud web hosting plans, allows you to control the name servers of any domain name registered through us with simply a couple of clicks, so even if you haven't had a web hosting plan or a domain name before, you simply won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it'll enable you to change the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domain addresses all at once. Additionally we give you the chance to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to point the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to direct the domain to their system. Different from other providers, we don't charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with highly user-friendly interface, that will enable you to manage your domain names with ease even when you haven't used a web hosting account or a domain address previously. Changing the NS records for any domain address registered with our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are right or not as to point that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also quite simple and takes as little as several mouse clicks. You are also going to be able to register child name servers under every one of your domains as part of the free DNS management services which 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 each and every domain address you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their websites, using this feature will give you far more credibility as a business.
