The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for example, and you input the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can look at the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared web hosting packages, will permit you to deal with the name servers of each and every domain registered through our company with only a couple of mouse clicks, so even when you have not had a web hosting plan or a domain address before, you will 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 name or even a number of domains simultaneously. In addition we offer you the ability to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for any domain address registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you're going to use the child NS to forward the domain name 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 to their system. Unlike other providers, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with very user-friendly interface, which will permit you to manage your domain names with ease even when you have not used a hosting account or a domain name in the past. Changing the NS records for each and every domain address registered through our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are right or not as to direct that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also quite simple and requires as little as a couple of clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domains as part of the free DNS control services we offer 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 which you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their websites, employing this feature will give you much more credibility as a business.
