The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain address is the simplest way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will be handled 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 modify any one of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain show 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 name you want to access. In this way the web site that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a website hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Hosting

In case you register a domain name within a hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers effortlessly. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain addresses at once, which will save you time and efforts if you have a large number of domains you want to forward to an alternative service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We enable you to create private name servers for every single domain address registered via 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 direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
