The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal 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 simplest way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will 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 if you want to modify some of these records, you will be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain address show the DNS servers that 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 Internet domain you want to reach. This way the site you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers with ease. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with only a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain addresses at a time, which can save you time and efforts when you have a lot of domain names that you'd like to direct to a different service provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. Additionally we allow you to create private name servers for any domain 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 direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses 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're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles 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, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many different domain names within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which could save you lots of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they are the proper ones or not as a way for the domain address to be directed to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to create private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
