The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain address is the most effective 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), etc, so if you want to edit any of these records, you're going to be able to do it by 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 attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the domain name you are trying to access. This way the website you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

When you use a Linux shared hosting from our us and you include a new domain in the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you'll be able to control its NS records easily through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided 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 control your domain address even if it's the first one you've ever registered. It requires merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a few mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any provider that you want the new NS records to forward to.
