The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal 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 most convenient 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), etcetera, so, in case you need to change any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name show the DNS servers that 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 reach. This way the website that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered inside a shared hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of several domains at the same time when you intend to point them all to the same website hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company site, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account as well, besides the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're going to be able to manage the NS records of each domain registered within it without difficulty. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool for you to manage everything related to your web presence, provides a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find your domains is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a few clicks. You'll also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain names uses at the moment and if they are the ones needed to forward that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your web site, especially if it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain address that you might want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
