The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain name is the simplest 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 if you wish to modify some of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers which 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. This way the site that you will see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company will use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you register a domain name within a cloud website hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers effortlessly. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with only a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain names at the same time, which can save you time and efforts when you have a huge number of domain names you want to point to a different provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. In addition we allow you to set up private name servers for each domain name registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs 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

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with highly user-friendly interface, which will enable you to control your domain names without difficulty even when you have never used a hosting account or a domain name up to now. Changing the NS records for each domain name registered through our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are correct or not as to forward that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also quite easy and takes only a few mouse clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain addresses as a part of the free DNS management services that we offer with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain name which you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their websites, employing this feature is going to give you a lot more credibility as a business.
