The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain name is the simplest way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will be handled on their end. This includes A (the IP address of the server/website), MX (mail server), TXT (free text), SRV (services), CNAME (forwarding), etc, so, in case you need to change any of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address point out the DNS servers which 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 you are attempting to reach. This way the site you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least two NS records. There is no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Hosting

If you register a domain name within a hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers effortlessly. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain addresses at once, which could save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a lot of domains you want to direct to another service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We allow you to set up private name servers for every domain registered using our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain in 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 difficulties 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 management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domain names in the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which will save you a lot of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the correct ones or not for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you've got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to create private name servers under any domain registered inside 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.
