The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain address is the easiest way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records are going to be managed 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 would like to change any one of these records, you'll be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain address show 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 want to reach. In this way the site that you will see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a shared web hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names at once, which will save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a large number of domain names you want to forward to a different service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. Furthermore we permit you to set up private name servers for every Internet domain registered with our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward 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 example, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for every single domain that is registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few clicks via the leading-edge, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to see the current NS records for a given domain and to determine if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain name to be pointed 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 name effortlessly even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you may also 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 are created, but also for any other domain address that you might want to host inside the same account. This feature is very useful if you have customers of your own and you would like their web sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
