The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain name is the most convenient way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records are going to be managed 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 forth, if you would like to change some of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name 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 domain name you want to reach. That way the site you'll see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company is going to use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

If you use a Linux shared web hosting from our us and you register a new domain name in the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you're going to be able to control its NS records with ease using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts.

This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to handle your domain address even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It takes merely a click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each provider that you want the new NS records to forward to.
