The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the easiest way to point 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, so, in case you want to modify any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain reveal the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the domain you are trying to reach. This way the website that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least two NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
The innovative Hepsia CP, offered with with our shared hosting plans, allows you to handle the name servers of each and every domain name registered through our company with only a couple of clicks, so even though you may haven't had a website hosting plan or a domain before, you'll not encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it'll allow you to edit the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain names together. In addition we give you the ability to create child name servers and for every domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you will use the child NS to direct the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to point the domain address to their system. Different from other providers, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any problems even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have multiple domain names in the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a great deal of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain to be pointed to the account which you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to create private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
