The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain address is the most convenient way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will 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), and so forth, if you want to edit some of these records, you will be able to do it through their system. In other words, 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 get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to reach. That way the web site that you will see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider is going to use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

In case you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain addresses at once, which can save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a large number of domains that you would like to forward to an alternative service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. We permit you to set up private name servers for each and every domain address registered via our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain 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 domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain address inside 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 troubles even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have several domain names in the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you a great deal of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they are the correct ones or not as a way for the domain to be directed to the account which you have on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for any other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
