The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain is the most effective way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will 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 want to edit any of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. In other words, 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 get the DNS records of the domain you are trying to access. This way the website that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

The outstanding Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud website hosting plans, allows you to handle the name servers of each domain address registered through our company with simply a few clicks, so even if you have never had a hosting plan or a domain before, you will not encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and will enable you to change the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain names simultaneously. We also provide you with the ability to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain address registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to forward the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to direct the domain to their system. In contrast to other companies, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each and every domain name that's registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the sophisticated, albeit 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 given domain address and to verify if they're the ones that are required for the domain to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to control any domain address with ease even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they are created, but also for any other domain address that you might want to host inside the very same account. This option is very useful when you have clients of your own and you would like their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is 100 % free.
