The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider 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), and so on, so, in case you need to change any one of these records, you will be able to do it through their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain show 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 Internet domain you are trying to access. That way the web site you'll see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a website hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared web hosting packages, will permit you to deal with the name servers of any domain registered through us with only a few clicks, so even though you may haven't had a web hosting plan or a domain before, you won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and will enable you to modify the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domains together. Additionally we provide you with the ability to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain address registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you're going to use the child NS to point the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to redirect the domain to their system. Different from other companies, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domain names 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 clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be directed to the account that you have got on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
