The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific 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), and so on, if you wish to edit any one of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name 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 retrieve the DNS records of the domain name you want to access. This way the website that you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Web Hosting

In case you register a domain name in a web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain addresses simultaneously, which can save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a lot of domains that you would like to forward to an alternative service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. Furthermore we permit you to set up private name servers for each and every Internet domain registered with our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs in particular, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
