The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, 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 point 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), and so forth, if you need to edit any one of these records, you'll be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address reveal 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 want to reach. In this way the website that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.

The name servers for every single domain which is registered through us may be changed with no more than a few clicks from the sophisticated, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans.
