The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain address is the simplest way to point 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, if you would like to modify any of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain name 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 get the DNS records of the Internet domain you want to access. That way the web site that you're going to 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 two NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.

The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our cloud hosting packages, allows you to control the name servers of each and every domain registered through us with only a couple of mouse clicks, so even though you may haven't had a website hosting plan or a domain before, you won't encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and will enable you to edit the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain addresses together. Additionally we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers and for each domain name registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to direct the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to direct the domain to their system. In contrast to other companies, we don't charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
