The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, for example, and you enter the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is obtained, enabling you to view the content from the right location. Commonly a domain address has a couple of 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 Servers

The name servers for any domain that is registered through us may be changed with no more than a few clicks via the leading-edge, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to see the current NS records for a particular domain address and to verify if they're the ones that are needed for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to manage any domain address easily even if you have not 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 set up, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host inside the same account. This option is very useful when you have clients of your own and you want their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is totally free.
