The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain address is the easiest 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), etcetera, so if you need to modify any of these records, you'll be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name 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 domain name you are attempting to reach. This way the site that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared website hosting plans, 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 though you may haven't had a hosting plan or a domain before, you'll not encounter any difficulties. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it will enable you to change the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain names simultaneously. In addition we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers and for every single domain address registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to direct the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to direct the domain address to their system. Different from other companies, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain address within 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 problems even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many different domain names in the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you lots of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they are the correct ones or not as a way for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to create private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
