The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain is the most effective way to forward 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, in case you want to modify some of these records, you'll 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 try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to access. In this way the web site you will see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company is going to use depends solely on their preference.

We offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers and for each and every domain name registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to forward the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to forward the domain to their system. Unlike other providers, we don't charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain name within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many domain addresses within the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you quite a lot of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the proper ones or not in order for the domain to be pointed to the account which you have on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
