The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain address is the most effective way to forward 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 on, if you want to change some of these records, you are going to be able to do it via their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address 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 name you are trying to access. That way the web site that you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to control its name servers with ease. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domains at a time, which could save you considerable time and efforts if you have a huge number of domain addresses that you'd like to forward to a different provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We allow you to set up private name servers for every single domain name registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each and every domain name that is registered through us may be changed with no more than a few clicks from the advanced, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to view the current NS records for a specific domain and to determine if they're the ones that are needed for the domain name to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to manage any domain easily even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you would like, 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 set up, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host within the exact same account. This feature is very handy if you have clients of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available totally free.
