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 specific host company for your domain is the easiest way to point 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), and so on, so if you would like to modify any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it by 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 try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain name you are trying to access. This way the site that you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company will use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

In case you register a domain name within a shared web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to manage its name servers with ease. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain addresses simultaneously, which could save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a lot of domain addresses that you'd like to redirect to a different service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Additionally we enable you to create private name servers for any Internet domain registered via our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
