The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain 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, if you wish to modify 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 address reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the domain you want to reach. That way the site that you'll see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least two NS records. There's no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider will use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a cloud website hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain addresses simultaneously, which will save you time and efforts in case you have a huge number of domain addresses that you'd like to redirect to an alternative provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We also permit 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 more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with extremely user-friendly interface, that will permit you to handle your domains effortlessly even if you have never used a hosting account or a domain name in the past. Changing the NS records for each and every domain registered with our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are correct or not as to point that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and requires only a few clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under every one of your domain addresses as an element of the free DNS control services which 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 that you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their web sites, using this feature is going to give you far more credibility as a business.
