The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain name is the easiest way to point it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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, in case you would like to edit some of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address show the DNS servers which 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 attempting to access. That way the website that you'll see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least 2 NS records. There's no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Website Hosting
In case you register a domain name within a website hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to handle its name servers with ease. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domains at a time, which will save you considerable time and efforts when you have a large number of domains you want to forward to a different service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We also enable you to create private name servers for every Internet domain registered through our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
