The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain 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), and so on, so if you wish to modify any of these records, you are going to be able to do it via their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to access. In this way the website that you're going to see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Hosting
The innovative Hepsia CP, offered with with our hosting plans, will permit you to take care of the name servers of every single domain name registered through our company with simply a couple of mouse clicks, so even though you may have never had a website hosting plan or a domain name before, you won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it will enable you to modify the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain addresses all at once. We provide you with the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every domain address registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you're going to use the child NS to direct the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to point the domain to their system. Different from other companies, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for every single domain that is registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the leading-edge, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to see the current NS records for a specific domain and to check if they're the ones that are required for the domain to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to control any domain address with ease even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain name under which they're set up, but also for any other domain address that you'd like to host inside the exact same account. This feature is very useful when you have customers of your own and you wish their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is totally free.
