The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the most convenient way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records will 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, if you want to edit 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 name reveal the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to reach. That way the website you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least 2 NS records. There's no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a website hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, offered with with our cloud hosting products, will enable you to handle the name servers of each and every domain name registered through our company with only a few mouse clicks, so even though you may have never had a website hosting plan or a domain name before, you'll not encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and will enable you to change the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domains all at once. We give you the ability to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every domain name registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you're going to use the child NS to direct 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 direct the domain name to their system. In contrast to other providers, we don't charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain name inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domain addresses within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you a great deal of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the correct ones or not for the domain to be directed to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
