The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain name is the simplest way to direct 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), and so on, if you want to edit any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name reveal 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 name you are trying to reach. This way the website that you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Hosting

In case you register a domain name within a hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to manage its name servers with ease. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain addresses at once, which will save you time and efforts when you have a lot of domains that you'd like to direct to a different service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Additionally we permit you to set up private name servers for every domain registered using our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs in particular, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to manage the NS records of every domain registered inside it with ease. The Hepsia CP, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can control everything relevant to your web presence, provides a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find your domain names is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a several mouse clicks. You're also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain addresses uses currently and if they're the ones required to point that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your web 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 inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
