The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain is the simplest 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), etc, so, in case you wish to change any one of these records, you'll be able to do it through their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain address point out the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to access. This way the web site you will see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a website hosting provider is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain address registered within a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of numerous domains at a time if you want to point them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform since the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still forward to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company website, for instance, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account also, not just the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to handle the NS records of any domain registered in it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can deal with everything related to your web presence, provides a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all your domains is not an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain name and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a few clicks. You'll also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domains uses presently and if they're the ones needed to point that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/ free of charge. This will give more credibility to your website, especially when it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address which you want to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
