The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain address is the most convenient way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records will 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 if you need to edit any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain 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 are trying to reach. In this way the website that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
In the event you register a domain name in a shared hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers effortlessly. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain names at a time, which can save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domain addresses that you'd like to forward to an alternative provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. In addition we permit you to set up private name servers for each domain address registered through our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs in particular, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
