The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain address is the simplest way to direct 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), and so on, so if you wish to change some of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain address reveal 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 you are attempting to access. This way the website you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least 2 NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you register a domain name inside a cloud website hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers effortlessly. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain names at the same time, which can save you time and efforts if you have a lot of domain addresses that you would like to redirect to an alternative provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We enable you to set up private name servers for each domain name registered via our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domains 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 that's registered through us may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the leading-edge, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as simple to see the current NS records for a specific domain address and to determine if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain name to be directed 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 with ease even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can also register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain name under which they're set up, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host inside the exact same account. This feature is very beneficial when you have customers of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available 100 % free.
