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 particular host company for your domain address is the most effective way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), etc, if you wish to change any of these records, you're going to be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain reveal the DNS servers which 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 access. In this way the web site that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least two NS records. There is no practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company will use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

If you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to handle its name servers easily. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain names at the same time, which could save you considerable time and efforts when you have a huge number of domain addresses that you would like to point to another provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We permit you to create private name servers for each and every domain address registered using our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain 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 required without any difficulties even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many domain names inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you a great deal of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be directed to the account which you have on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to create private name servers under any domain registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for any other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
