The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain name is the most convenient way to point it to their system and all its sub-records are going to be managed 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 need to modify some of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the domain name you are trying to access. In this way the web site that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

If you register a domain name inside a cloud web hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers easily. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain names simultaneously, which could save you considerable time and efforts if you have a lot of domain addresses that you would like to point to another service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. In addition we enable you to create private name servers for every single Internet domain registered using our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for example, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for every single domain address which is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the innovative, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to see the current NS records for a particular domain address and to check if they're the ones that are required for the domain address to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to handle any domain easily even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they're created, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host within the very same account. This option is very handy when you have clients of your own and you would like their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
