The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain name is the simplest 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, so, in case you wish to modify any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it using their system. In other words, 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 obtain the DNS records of the domain name you are attempting 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 each domain name has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a website hosting provider will use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

The innovative Hepsia CP, which comes with our shared website hosting products, will permit you to control the name servers of each and every domain name registered through our company with only a couple of mouse clicks, so even if you have not had a web hosting plan or a domain name before, you simply won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and will permit you to edit the NS records of any domain or even a number of domains simultaneously. Additionally we offer you the chance to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each domain address registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you'll use the child NS to point the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to direct the domain address to their system. Unlike other providers, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for every single domain name that is registered through us may be changed with no more than a few clicks using the leading-edge, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to view the current NS records for a particular domain address and to verify if they're the ones that are required for the domain to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to manage any domain effortlessly even if you have never 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 under which they're created, but also for any other domain name that you might want to host inside the very same account. This feature is very handy if you have clients of your own and you want their websites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
