The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain name is the most convenient way to direct 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 edit some of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name reveal 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 Internet domain you are trying to reach. This way the website that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There is no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain name registered in a cloud web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you merely moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of numerous domain addresses at once if you would like to forward them all to the same hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domains to our platform given that the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each domain that is registered through us can be changed with no more than a few clicks through the advanced, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to view the current NS records for a given domain address and to check if they are the ones that are needed for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to manage any domain address easily even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you can also register private name servers and and use them not only for the domain name under which they are set up, but also for any other domain that you'd like to host inside the exact same account. This option is very useful if you have customers of your own and you want their sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available totally free.
