The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain 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 enter the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the right location. Usually a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
In the event you register a domain name within a cloud hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers easily. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain addresses simultaneously, which will save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a huge number of domains you want to direct to another service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. Additionally we allow you to set up private name servers for each Internet domain registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're going to be able to manage the NS records of every domain address registered inside it easily.

You'll also be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain names uses presently and if they're the ones required to direct that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ totally free. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly when it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address that you would like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
