The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain address is the most convenient 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 forth, so, in case you wish to change any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it through their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to access. In this way the web site that you'll see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Website Hosting

If you register a domain name within a website hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domains at once, which could save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domains that you would like to point to an alternative service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We also allow you to create private name servers for each and every domain name registered through our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for any domain name that's registered through us may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the leading-edge, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to see the current NS records for a specific domain and to determine if they're the ones that are needed for the domain address to be forwarded 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 name effortlessly even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you may even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain name under which they are created, but also for any other domain that you would like to host within the exact same account. This option is very beneficial if you have clients of your own and you would like their websites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available 100 % free.
