The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain address is the easiest 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 change any one of these records, you will 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 get the DNS records of the Internet domain you want to access. This way the web site you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least two NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider will use depends entirely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our cloud hosting products, will allow you to control the name servers of each and every domain registered through our company with only a few clicks, so even when you have not had a website hosting plan or a domain name before, you will not encounter any issues.

In addition we give you the chance to create child name servers and for each domain address registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to point the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to direct the domain name to their system. Unlike other providers, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain name inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domain addresses inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them at once, which can save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the right ones or not for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to create private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
