The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given 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), etcetera, so if you want to edit any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it using their system. Put simply, 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 domain you are attempting to access. In this way the website that you're going to see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company will use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our cloud hosting plans, will enable you to handle the name servers of every single domain registered through us with simply a few mouse clicks, so even when you haven't had a website hosting plan or a domain name before, you will not encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and will enable you to modify the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain addresses together. In addition we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every domain address registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you're going to use the child NS to direct the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to forward the domain address to their system. In contrast to other providers, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to handle the NS records of each domain name registered in it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything relevant to your web presence, offers a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section in which you will find all your domain addresses is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain address and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a several clicks. You're also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domains uses currently and if they're the ones needed to direct that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com totally free. This will give more credibility to your web site, especially when it is a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain that you'd like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
