The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain name is the easiest way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records will 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), and so on, if you wish to edit any of these records, you'll be able to do it using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain point out the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the domain name you are trying to access. That way the site that you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia CP, offered with with our shared web hosting products, will permit you to control the name servers of any domain name registered through our company with just a couple of mouse clicks, so even if you haven't had a website hosting plan or a domain name before, you won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and will enable you to modify the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domains all at once. We offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers and for each and every domain name registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to point the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to forward the domain to their system. Unlike other companies, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domain addresses within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the correct ones or not for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to set up private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for any other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
