The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain address 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), and so on, so, in case you need to edit some of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain show 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 trying to reach. That way the website that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least 2 NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a website hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
If you register a domain name within a shared web hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to handle its name servers with ease. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain names simultaneously, which will save you time and efforts if you have a large number of domains you want to direct to another provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Furthermore we permit you to set up private name servers for each and every domain registered through our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to handle the NS records of any domain name registered within it without difficulty. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything relevant to your web presence, offers a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section in which you will find your domain names isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain name and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a couple of clicks. You will also be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses at the moment and if they're the ones required to point that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ totally free. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly if it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
