The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain address is the easiest way to forward 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 forth, so if you need to edit some of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain you are trying to reach. That way the site that you will see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company is going to use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to manage its name servers easily. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain addresses at once, which could save you considerable time and efforts when you have a huge number of domain names that you'd like to forward to an alternative provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We also allow you to create private name servers for each and every Internet domain registered with our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs in particular, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. 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 quite a lot of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you've got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to create private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
