The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain name is the most effective way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records are going to be taken care of 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, in case you need to modify any one of these records, you'll be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address 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 Internet domain you are trying to reach. This way the site that you will see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.

The innovative Hepsia CP, included with with our web hosting products, will permit you to handle the name servers of every domain name registered through our company with just a couple of clicks, so even though you may have never had a web hosting plan or a domain name 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 modify the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domain names simultaneously. In addition we provide you with the opportunity to create child name servers and for every domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you're going to use the child NS to forward the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to point the domain name to their system. In contrast to other providers, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to handle the NS records of each domain address registered within it without difficulty.

The section where you will find your domains isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain address and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You will also be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domains uses currently and if they are the ones required to point that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ free of charge. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly when it's a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain address that you would like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
