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 given host company for your domain address is the easiest way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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 would like to edit some of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that 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 Internet domain you want to access. This way the web site you will see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least 2 NS records. There is no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

If you use a Linux shared web hosting from our company and you add a new domain name in the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you will be able to manage its NS records effortlessly using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for several domains at the same time with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to control your domain even if it is the first you have ever registered. It takes merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to direct a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of any company that you want the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each and every domain that's registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks via the innovative, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to see the current NS records for a specific domain and to verify if they're the ones that are necessary 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 enable you to handle any domain easily even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain address under which they're created, but also for any other domain that you would like to host within the very same account. This feature is very handy if you have clients of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
