The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain name is the most effective way to forward 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 forth, so if you want to change some of these records, you'll be able to do it using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name reveal 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 attempting to reach. In this way the web site that you're going to see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least two NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider will use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

If you register a domain name in a shared web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to handle its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain names at once, which can save you time and efforts if you have a large number of domain addresses that you'd like to forward to an alternative service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Furthermore we enable you to create private name servers for every single domain name registered using our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time 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 invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to handle the NS records of each domain address registered within it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool where you can deal with everything associated with your web presence, provides a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all of your domains isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain address and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a several clicks. You will also be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses presently and if they are the ones required to forward that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/ at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly if it is a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain name which you want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
