The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the 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 web 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 would like 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 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 look at the content from the right location. Normally 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 Shared Website Hosting

In case you register a domain name inside a shared website hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain addresses at the same time, which can save you time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names that you would like to point to an alternative service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. Furthermore we enable you to create private name servers for every domain name registered via our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct 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 example, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain name which is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few clicks using the advanced, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to see the current NS records for a specific domain and to verify if they're the ones that are needed for the domain name to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to handle any domain address easily even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain under which they're created, but also for any other domain that you would like to host within the very same account. This feature is very useful when you have customers of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is free of charge.
