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 given host company for your domain is the easiest 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), and so on, so, in case you need to edit some of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to access. In this way the website that you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.
NS Records in Web Hosting
The outstanding Hepsia CP, offered with with our web hosting products, will allow you to manage the name servers of every single domain address registered through us with only a few mouse clicks, so even when you have not had a hosting plan or a domain name before, you won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it'll allow you to modify the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domains simultaneously. We also give you the ability to set up child name servers and for each domain registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to point the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to redirect the domain to their system. Different from other providers, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a new domain name in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you'll be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many domain addresses inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you lots of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the proper ones or not as a way for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to create private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
