The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain name is the easiest 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), etc, if you need to edit some of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain 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 want to reach. This way the website you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

If you register a domain name inside a shared web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to manage its name servers effortlessly. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domains at the same time, which could save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a lot of domains that you would like to redirect to a different provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We also enable you to create private name servers for each and every domain name registered using our company and unlike 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 IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have a number of domains inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them at once, which will save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they are the correct ones or not in order for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have got on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to create private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for every other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
