The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain is the most effective way to direct 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 forth, if you need to change any of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address point out 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 you are attempting to reach. In this way the web site you will see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company will use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Web Hosting
When you use a web hosting plan from our us and you include a new domain address in the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you will be able to handle its NS records with ease through the Hepsia web hosting CP, offered with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a group of domain names at once with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it easy to manage your domain even if it is the first one you've ever registered. It takes only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to forward a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any company that you would like the new NS records to forward to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with highly user-friendly interface, which will help you control your domains with ease even if you have not used a web hosting account or a domain address previously.

You're also going to be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain names as an element of the free DNS control services that we offer you with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com.
