The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain name is the simplest way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records will be taken care of 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, in case you wish to edit some 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 obtain the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to access. That way the website that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least two NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider will use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a website hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to manage its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain names at a time, which can save you time and efforts if you have a lot of domain names that you'd like to point to an alternative service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. We also enable you to set up private name servers for each domain registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
