The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal 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 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), etcetera, so if you need to edit any one of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, 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 get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to access. In this way the site that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least 2 NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Hosting
When you use a hosting from our company and you add a new domain address within the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you are going to be able to control its NS records easily via the Hepsia website hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a group of domain addresses at once with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to handle your domain even if it is the first one you've ever registered. It requires only a click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to direct a domain address 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 each of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each company that you would like the new NS records to point to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for every domain name that's registered through us may be changed with no more than a few clicks from the advanced, although easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to view the current NS records for a particular domain address and to check if they are the ones that are required for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to handle any domain easily even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, 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 created, but also for any other domain that you'd like to host in the very same account. This option is very useful if you have clients of your own and you wish their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available totally free.
