The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company 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), and so on, if you need to change any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address point out 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 Internet domain you are attempting to access. This way the web site you will see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider will use depends entirely on their preference.

The outstanding Hepsia CP, included with with our shared hosting packages, allows you to deal with the name servers of every domain registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks, so even when you have never had a hosting plan or a domain name before, you will not encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and it'll permit you to edit the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain names simultaneously. In addition we provide you with the opportunity to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every domain address registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you will use the child NS to forward the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to direct the domain name to their system. Unlike other providers, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
