The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the most effective way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will 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), etc, so, in case you need to modify any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain address 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 retrieve the DNS records of the domain you want to reach. That way the web site that you're going to see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There is no practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company is going to use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

The outstanding Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our cloud hosting packages, will allow you to handle the name servers of every single domain name registered through our company with simply a few clicks, so even if you haven't had a web 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'll allow you to modify the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domains simultaneously. We give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each domain address registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you will use the child NS to direct the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you will use the new records to forward the domain name to their system. Unlike other providers, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to control any domain name effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you want, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain address under which they're set up, but also for any other domain that you'd like to host inside the very same account. This feature is very handy if you have customers of your own and you would like their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is totally free.
