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 given host company for your domain is the simplest way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will 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 want to change any of these records, you are going to be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the Internet domain you want to reach. In this way the website you will see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company will use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

If you use a Linux cloud website hosting from our company and you add a new domain name inside the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you are going to be able to manage its NS records easily through the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for many domains simultaneously with several mouse clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to manage your domain even if it's the first you've ever registered. It takes simply a click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any company that you want the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for every single domain that is registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the innovative, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to view the current NS records for a particular domain name and to verify if they are the ones that are required for the domain address to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to control any domain address easily even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain under which they are set up, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host inside the exact same account. This feature is very handy when you have clients of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is free of charge.
