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 hosting provider for your domain name is the simplest way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records will be taken care of 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 if you want to modify 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 name show 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 name you want to access. In this way the website that you will see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least 2 NS records. There's no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company will use depends entirely on their preference.
NS Records in Web Hosting
The innovative Hepsia CP, offered with with our web hosting plans, will allow you to deal with the name servers of any domain registered through us with only a couple of mouse clicks, so even if you have never had a web hosting plan or a domain name before, you will not encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it will allow you to modify the NS records of any domain or even a number of domains all at once. We give you the ability to create child name servers and for any domain address registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to point the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you will use the new records to forward the domain address to their system. Different from other providers, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain name in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have several domain names in the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the correct ones or not in order for the domain name to be directed to the account that you have got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to create private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
