The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain is the most convenient way to point 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, if you need to modify any of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to reach. That way the site that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider will use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Hosting
The avant-garde Hepsia CP, which comes with our hosting products, will permit you to deal with the name servers of every single domain address registered through our company with only a couple of mouse clicks, so even if you have not had a web hosting plan or a domain name before, you will not encounter any difficulties. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and it will enable you to change the NS records of any domain or even a number of domains together. Additionally we offer you the chance to set up child name servers and for each and every domain registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to point the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to redirect the domain address to their system. Different from other companies, we don't charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for each domain address which is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few clicks using the innovative, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to view the current NS records for a particular domain address and to determine if they are the ones that are necessary for the domain address to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to control any domain name with ease even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you can also register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain address under which they're set up, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host within the very same account. This feature is very beneficial if you have customers of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available absolutely free.
