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 particular host company for your domain is the easiest way to point 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, if you need to modify any of these records, you are going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain reveal 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 want to access. In this way the site you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally 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 which one a host company will use depends entirely on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
If you use a shared hosting from our company and you add a new domain name in the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you will be able to control its NS records with ease using the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for a group of domain names at a time with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to handle your domain name even if it's the first one you've ever registered. It takes simply a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any provider that you want the new NS records to point to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you'll be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have multiple domain names inside the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you lots of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the correct ones or not as a way for the domain address to be directed to the account that you've got on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to set up private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for any other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
