The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain name is the simplest way to point 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, so if you want to edit any one of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the domain name you are attempting 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 every single domain has at least 2 NS records. There's no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered inside a shared hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you just moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of several domain names at the same time when you want to point them all to the same webhosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform because the transfer procedure is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you want to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company website, for example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain address to the same account too, besides the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with incredibly user-friendly interface, which will allow you to control your domain names with ease even if you have never used a web hosting account or a domain name in the past. Changing the NS records for any domain address registered using our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are correct or not as to forward that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also very simple and requires only a couple of clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under any of your domain names as an element of the free DNS administration services which we offer with each and every plan and have and The latter can be used for each and every domain address you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their web sites, using this feature is going to give you far more credibility as a business.
