The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain is the most effective way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will be taken care of on their end. This includes A (the IP address of the server/website), MX (mail server), TXT (free text), SRV (services), CNAME (forwarding), etc, if you want to modify any of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to access. In this way the web site that you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least 2 NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

The innovative Hepsia CP, which comes with our shared hosting packages, will enable you to take care of the name servers of every domain registered through our company with just a few clicks, so even when you have never 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'll permit you to modify the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain addresses together. Additionally we offer you the ability to create child name servers and for each domain address registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to forward the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to point the domain to their system. Different from other companies, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have a number of domain addresses within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you lots of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain to be directed to the account that you've got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
