The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain address is the most effective way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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, if you wish to change any of these records, you'll be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address point out 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 attempting to access. This way the web site you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least two NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered in a shared web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you only moments. Using 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 domain names at the same time in case that you want to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform given that the transfer procedure won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, for instance, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to handle the NS records of any domain address registered in it without difficulty. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can control everything related to your web presence, comes with a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find your domains is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain address and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You'll also be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain names uses presently and if they are the ones required to forward that domain name 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 at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly when it is a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain address that you might want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
