The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain name is the most effective way to point it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), etcetera, so, in case you need to edit any of these records, you will be able to do it through their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers that 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 domain you are attempting to access. That way the web site that you will see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company is going to use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domains at the same time, which can save you considerable time and efforts when you have a lot of domain addresses you want to direct to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. We also allow you to set up private name servers for any domain name registered using our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to handle the NS records of every domain registered within it easily.

You'll also be able to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain addresses uses presently and if they are the ones needed to forward that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly if it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain name that you'd like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
