The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain is the most effective way to direct 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 would like to modify any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address 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 Internet domain you are trying to access. In this way the site that you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider will use depends entirely on their preference.
NS Records in Web Hosting
If you register a domain name within a web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to manage its name servers without difficulty. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a couple of clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domains simultaneously, which can save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names you want to point to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We allow you to create private name servers for any domain name registered with our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domain names 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're going to be able to manage the NS records of any domain registered inside it effortlessly. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can handle everything relevant to your web presence, comes with a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find your domain addresses is not an exception, so even if you have not had a domain 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 are also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domains uses at the moment and if they're the ones required to direct that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly if it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain that you might want to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
