The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain name is the most effective way to direct 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), and so on, so if you wish to modify some of these records, you are going to be able to do it using their system. In other words, 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 obtain the DNS records of the domain name you want to reach. In this way the website that you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least two NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider is going to use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

In case you register a domain name inside a shared hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain names at once, which will save you time and efforts if you have a huge number of domains that you would like to point to a different service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We enable you to set up private name servers for each and every domain name registered via our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
