The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain is the most effective way to point 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 any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it through their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name 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 obtain the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to reach. In this way the website that you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered within a shared hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you just seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of several domain names simultaneously whenever you would like to point them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, for instance, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain address to the same account too, not only the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to manage the NS records of each domain name registered inside it without difficulty. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to deal with everything associated with your web presence, offers a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find your domain addresses isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain name and a web 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 of your domains uses right now and if they are the ones required to forward that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ free of charge. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly when it's a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain that you'd like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
