The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers deal with 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 point 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 forth, so, in case you want to modify any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address point out the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the domain you are attempting to access. This way the site that you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company is going to use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia CP, offered with with our hosting packages, allows you to handle the name servers of each domain registered through us with only a couple of clicks, so even though you may have not had a 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 allow you to edit the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain names simultaneously. Additionally we give you the ability to create child name servers and for any domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you'll use the child NS to direct the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to redirect the domain address to their system. In contrast to other providers, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain name in 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 never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have a number of domain addresses in the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the proper ones or not for the domain address to be directed to the account that you have got on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
