The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain is the easiest way to point it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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 forth, so, in case you wish to modify any of these records, you'll 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 try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to reach. That way the website you will see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud web hosting packages, will permit you to deal with the name servers of any domain name registered through us with just a few mouse clicks, so even though you may have never had a hosting plan or a domain before, you'll not encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and it'll allow you to modify the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain addresses simultaneously. We also offer you the chance to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for any domain name registered in 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 name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you will use the new records to point the domain address to their system. In contrast to other providers, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain address that is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few clicks through the sophisticated, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to view the current NS records for a specific domain name and to determine if they are the ones that are needed for the domain address to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to manage any domain name effortlessly even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you want, you may even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain name under which they're set up, but also for any other domain that you'd like to host inside the same account. This option is very useful if you have clients of your own and you wish their sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is totally free.
