The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain is the most convenient way to point it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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, if you would like to edit some of these records, you are going to be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the domain you want to access. This way the site that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least 2 NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.
NS Records in Web Hosting
In the event you register a domain name in a web hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to manage its name servers easily. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with only a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain addresses simultaneously, which could save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain names you want to direct to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We permit you to create private name servers for each and every domain name registered through our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect 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 for example, all domains added to 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 are going to be able to control the NS records of each domain registered within it easily. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to control everything relevant to your web presence, offers a very simple and intuitive interface. The section in which you will find all of your domains isn't 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 several clicks. You're also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domains uses currently and if they are the ones needed to point that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we present you with opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/ at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly when it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain that you'd like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
