The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the most convenient 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 forth, if you would like to change any of these records, you'll be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address point out the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the Internet domain you want to access. That way the website that you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.

When you use a shared website hosting plan from our us and you register a new domain within the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you'll be able to handle its NS records with ease through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts.

It takes merely a click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a few mouse clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain addresses that you own.
