The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the most effective way to direct 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), and so on, so if you need to edit some of these records, you'll be able to do it via their system. Put simply, 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 access. This way the web site that you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting

The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and it'll allow you to modify the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domain names all at once. Additionally we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each and every domain name registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you will use the child NS to direct the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to forward the domain to their system. Different from other providers, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

You'll also be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain names as part of the free DNS management services we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain address which you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their web sites, using this feature is going to give you much more credibility as a business.
