The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain is the simplest way to point it to their system and all its sub-records are going to be taken care of on their end. This includes A (the IP address of the server/website), MX (mail server), TXT (free text), SRV (services), CNAME (forwarding), etcetera, so if you need to edit any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it via their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain point out 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 domain name you want to reach. That way the web site you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There's no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company will use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you will be able to manage its name servers with ease. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain addresses at the same time, which will save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a huge number of domains that you would like to point to another provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. In addition we allow you to set up private name servers for every single domain name registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs in particular, all domain names included in 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 control the NS records of every domain address registered in it with ease. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to manage everything related to your web presence, comes with a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section where you will find all your domain addresses isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain name and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a few mouse clicks. You'll also be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain names uses at the moment and if they're the ones needed to point that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/ at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your web site, especially when it's a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain address that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
