The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain address is the easiest 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 forth, if you need to edit some of these records, you'll be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain address reveal the DNS servers which 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 access. This way the website you will see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a website hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Website Hosting

In case you register a domain name inside a website hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domains at the same time, which can save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a huge number of domain addresses that you'd like to direct to another provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. In addition we enable you to set up private name servers for any domain registered through our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything additional 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 IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
