The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the most effective way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records will be managed on their end. This includes A (the IP address of the server/website), MX (mail server), TXT (free text), SRV (services), CNAME (forwarding), etc, so if you need to edit any of these records, you are going to be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address reveal 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 want to access. This way the web site that you will see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Web Hosting
The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our web hosting products, will enable you to take care of the name servers of every domain registered through us with only a few clicks, so even when you haven't had a hosting plan or a domain before, you simply won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and will allow you to edit the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domain addresses together. Additionally we provide you with the ability to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for any domain address registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you will use the child NS to direct the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to point the domain address to their system. In contrast to other companies, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

It's just as effortless to see the current NS records for a given domain name and to verify if they are the ones that are needed for the domain address to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to handle any domain address with ease even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they are created, but also for any other domain address that you might want to host inside the exact same account. This feature is very handy if you have clients of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is totally free.
