The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain address is the most effective way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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 need to edit any one of these records, you'll be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to access. That way the website that you will see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider is going to use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Website Hosting
When you use a website hosting from our company and you include a new domain inside the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you will be able to manage its NS records with ease via the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for a group of domain addresses at the same time with several clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to handle your domain address even if it's the first one you've ever registered. It takes only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a few mouse clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for each of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each company that you'd like the new NS records to point to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for any domain that is registered through us may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the leading-edge, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to view the current NS records for a specific domain and to verify if they are the ones that are required for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to handle any domain name effortlessly even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain under which they're set up, but also for any other domain name that you might want to host inside the same account. This feature is very beneficial if you have customers of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
