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 forward 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), etc, so, in case you wish to edit some of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address point out the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to reach. This way the website you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There is no practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared hosting packages, will allow you to deal with the name servers of every single domain name registered through our company with just a few mouse clicks, so even though you may haven't had a hosting plan or a domain before, you won't encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it will enable you to modify the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domains together. We also provide you with the ability to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to forward the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to point the domain to their system. In contrast to other companies, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to manage the NS records of any domain registered inside it with ease. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool where you can deal with everything associated with your web presence, offers a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section where you will find all of your domain names is not an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a few clicks. You'll also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain names uses right now and if they are the ones needed to forward that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly when it's a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain address that you'd like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
