The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain name is the most effective way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will be handled 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 need to modify some of these records, you are going to be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain address show the DNS servers that 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 you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider will use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered in a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain address, but even of numerous domain addresses at the same time when you want to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform since the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company website, as an example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain address to the same account as well, not just the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for every domain that is registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks via the innovative, although easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to see the current NS records for a given domain name and to determine if they're the ones that are required for the domain address to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to control any domain address easily even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain under which they are set up, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host in the same account. This option is very useful when you have customers of your own and you want their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
