The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain name is the simplest way to point 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 forth, if you need to edit any one of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name reveal 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 want to reach. This way the site you will see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least 2 NS records. There's no practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Website Hosting

If you register a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domains at a time, which will save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a lot of domain names that you'd like to forward to an alternative provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. Furthermore we enable you to create private name servers for any domain address registered with our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so if 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 Servers

When you register a new domain name in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have a number of domain addresses in the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which could save you lots of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain to be forwarded to the account which you have on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
