The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain is the easiest way to forward 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), etcetera, so, in case you need to edit some of these records, you're going to be able to do it by using 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 get the DNS records of the domain name you are trying to access. This way the website you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider will use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Website Hosting
In case you register a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with only a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domains simultaneously, which can save you time and efforts if you have a lot of domain addresses you want to point to another provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We allow you to create private name servers for each Internet domain registered with our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're going to be able to manage the NS records of any domain address registered in it effortlessly. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can manage everything relevant to your web presence, comes with a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section where you will find your domain names isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain name and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You'll also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain names uses right now and if they are the ones needed to point that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your site, especially if it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address that you would like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
