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 given hosting provider for your domain address is the most convenient way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), etc, if you would like to edit any of these records, you are going to be able to do it through their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address point out the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain you are trying to access. This way the web site you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company is going to use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

In case you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers with ease. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain names at the same time, which could save you time and efforts in case you have a lot of domains that you'd like to direct to a different service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Furthermore we enable you to set up private name servers for any domain name registered with our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect 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 in particular, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
