The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain name is the most effective way to direct 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, in case you wish to modify any one of these records, you'll be able to do it via their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the domain you want to reach. In this way the site you'll 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 two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company is going to use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domains at once, which will save you time and efforts when you have a lot of domain addresses that you would like to direct to a different service provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We allow you to set up private name servers for every single Internet domain registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
