The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain is the simplest way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records will 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), and so on, so if you wish to change some of these records, you are going to be able to do it through their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name show 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 are trying to reach. This way the web site you will see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

If you register a domain name in a cloud website hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domains simultaneously, which will save you considerable time and efforts when you have a huge number of domains that you would like to redirect to another service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. Furthermore we enable you to set up private name servers for any domain address registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for instance, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to manage the NS records of each domain name registered inside it effortlessly. The Hepsia CP, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can deal with everything related to your web presence, provides a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section where you will find your domains isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain name and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a several clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain addresses uses currently and if they are the ones needed to direct that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your site, especially if it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain that you'd like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
