The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers manage 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 direct 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, if you need to edit any one of these records, you'll be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to reach. In this way the site that you're going to see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company is going to use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name within a website hosting account from our company, you'll be able to control its name servers with ease. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain addresses at a time, which can save you time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain addresses that you'd like to redirect to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We also permit you to set up private name servers for every single domain name registered using our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many domain addresses in the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a great deal of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the right ones or not for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for any other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
