The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain address is the simplest way to direct 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), and so on, if you need to modify any one of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. In other words, 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 domain you want to reach. That way the website that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically 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 type a web hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Web Hosting

When you use a web hosting package from our us and you add a new domain within the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you're going to be able to manage its NS records effortlessly through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a group of domain names at the same time with several clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to handle your domain even if it is the first you've ever registered. It takes simply a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to forward a domain to the hosting space on our end and with a few clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any company that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain address that is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the sophisticated, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as simple to view the current NS records for a specific domain address and to verify 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 handle any domain name effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain under which they're set up, but also for any other domain address that you might want to host in the same account. This option is very beneficial when you have clients of your own and you wish their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is 100 % free.
