The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain name is the easiest way to forward 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), and so on, if you would like to modify any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain you are trying to reach. That way the web site you will see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least two NS records. There is no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company will use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
If you register a domain name in a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domains simultaneously, which will save you time and efforts in case you have a huge number of domain names that you'd like to direct to a different service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We permit you to create private name servers for every Internet domain registered with our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything extra for this service. The new 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 each time you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with very user-friendly interface, which will allow you to control your domain addresses with ease even when you have not used a web hosting account or a domain before. Changing the NS records for any domain registered through our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are correct or not as to forward that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and requires only a few clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under any of your domain names as part of the free DNS administration services we offer you with each and every plan and have and The latter can be used for every domain address that you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their sites, using this feature will give you much more credibility as a business.
