The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain address is the most convenient way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records will be taken care of 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 if you wish to change some of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address reveal the DNS servers that 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 domain name you are trying to reach. This way the website that you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

If you register a domain name inside a shared hosting account from our company, you will be able to manage its name servers effortlessly. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain addresses at the same time, which will save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a large number of domains that you would like to point to another provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. In addition we permit you to create private name servers for each and every domain name registered via our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every 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

If you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have a number of domain names within the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which will save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be directed to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for every other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
