The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain name is the simplest way to direct 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 on, if you wish to change any of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain address show 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. In this way the website you will see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider will use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a cloud website hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers easily. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain names simultaneously, which could save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domains you want to direct to a different service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. Furthermore we allow you to set up private name servers for every domain registered using our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with extremely user-friendly interface, that will allow you to handle your domains effortlessly even when you have never used a hosting account or a domain before. Changing the NS records for each and every domain address registered through our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are right or not as to direct that domain name to our cloud hosting platform is also very simple and takes only several clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under any of your domain addresses as an element of the free DNS management services that we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain address which you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their websites, using this feature will give you a lot more credibility as a business.
