The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain name is the most convenient way to direct 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), etc, if you want to change some of these records, you are going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain point out the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain name you are attempting to reach. In this way the website that you're going to see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

The innovative Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud hosting packages, will enable you to take care of the name servers of each and every domain registered through us with simply a few mouse clicks, so even when you have never had a web hosting plan or a domain address before, you will not encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and will permit you to modify the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain names together. Additionally we offer you the ability to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain address registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you are 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 redirect the domain name to their system. In contrast to other companies, we don't charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain inside 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 name of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domain addresses inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which could 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're the correct ones or not for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you've got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to create private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
