The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain is the easiest way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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 forth, so if you need to change any one of these records, you will be able to do it via their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the domain name you are attempting to access. In this way the web site that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least two NS records. There isn't any functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider is going to use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Web Hosting

When you use a web hosting from our us and you register a new domain address inside the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you are going to be able to control its NS records easily via the Hepsia web hosting CP, offered with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for a number of domain addresses at once with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to manage your domain name even if it is the first you have ever registered. It takes simply a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to direct a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of any provider that you want the new NS records to direct to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any issues even if you have not had a domain 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 many different domains inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you a lot of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the correct ones or not as a way for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you have on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to create private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
