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 specific host company for your domain is the most effective way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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 on, so, in case you wish to modify any of these records, you're going to be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain you want to reach. That way the site you will see will be retrieved from the proper 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 functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a website hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domains simultaneously, which can save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain addresses that you would like to point to an alternative service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. In addition we permit you to set up private name servers for every Internet domain registered using our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many different domain addresses inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the proper ones or not in order for the domain to be directed to the account which you have on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
