The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain name is the simplest 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), etc, so, in case you need to edit some of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to access. That way the website you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

If you register a domain name inside a cloud web hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to manage its name servers easily. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain names at a time, which will save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a huge number of domain names that you'd like to redirect to a different provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We permit you to create private name servers for every single Internet domain registered using our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything extra 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 when you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're going to be able to handle the NS records of any domain address registered within it with ease. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything associated with your web presence, provides a very simple and intuitive interface. The section in which you will find all your domains isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a several clicks. You will also be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain addresses uses presently and if they are the ones required to direct that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we present you with opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/ at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly if it's a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain that you'd like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
