The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the 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), pointing (CNAME record) etc 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 should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for example, and you input the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is obtained, enabling you to see the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for every single domain address that's registered through us may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the advanced, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as simple to view the current NS records for a given domain and to verify if they are the ones that are required for the domain address to be directed 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 effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you may also register private name servers and and use them not only for the domain under which they're created, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host inside the same account. This feature is very beneficial if you have clients of your own and you wish their sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
