The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers handle 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 forward it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), etcetera, so if you wish to modify any of these records, you will be able to do it via their system. To put it differently, 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 want to reach. In this way the web site that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to control its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just 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 will save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain names that you'd like to point to another provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We enable you to set up private name servers for any domain address registered with our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each and every domain which is registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the leading-edge, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to view the current NS records for a specific domain address and to verify if they are the ones that are needed for the domain address to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to manage any domain name effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you may also 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 in the exact same account. This option is very handy if you have clients of your own and you wish their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
