The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for example, and you type in the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the correct location. Normally a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.

It requires merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each and every provider that you want the new NS records to forward to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to control the NS records of each domain name registered inside it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool for you to deal with everything related to your web presence, provides a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find your domain names is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain name and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You are also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses at the moment and if they're the ones required to forward that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com totally free. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly when it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address that you might want to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
