The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain name is the easiest way to point it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), etcetera, so, in case you want to modify any one of these records, you will be able to do it through their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain point out the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the domain you want to reach. That way the web site that you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least two NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider is going to use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

In the event you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers easily. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website 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 multiple domain addresses at the same time, which could save you time and efforts when you have a huge number of domains that you'd like to point to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We enable you to create private name servers for every single domain name registered with our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for any domain address that's registered through us could be changed with no more than a few clicks through the leading-edge, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to see the current NS records for a specific domain and to determine if they're the ones that are necessary 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 permit you to manage any domain address effortlessly 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 just for the domain name under which they are created, but also for any other domain name that you would like to host within the same account. This option is very beneficial if you have customers of your own and you would like their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available totally free.
