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 address is the most convenient 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 on, so, in case you need to edit any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain reveal the DNS servers that 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 domain name you want to access. In this way the website that you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least 2 NS records. There's no practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

If you register a domain name inside a shared web hosting account from our company, you will be able to control its name servers with ease. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domains at a time, which could save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a lot of domains that you would like to point to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. We also allow you to set up private name servers for each Internet domain registered via our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for example, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have multiple domain addresses inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them at once, which can save you a great deal of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the correct ones or not in order for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to create private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
