The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain is the most convenient 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), etc, if you wish to modify some of these records, you are going to be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name show 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 name you want to access. This way the web site that you're going to see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

If you register a domain name within a shared website hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain names at a time, which will save you time and efforts when you have a large number of domains you want to redirect to an alternative provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We enable you to create private name servers for every Internet domain registered via 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 redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for any domain that is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few clicks via the sophisticated, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to see the current NS records for a particular 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 enable you to manage any domain address easily even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you'd 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 address under which they're set up, but also for any other domain that you'd like to host within the exact same account. This feature is very beneficial when you have customers of your own and you would like their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
