The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain is the most effective way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records are going to be managed on their end. This includes A (the IP address of the server/website), MX (mail server), TXT (free text), SRV (services), CNAME (forwarding), etc, so, in case you need to edit any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to reach. In this way the site that you will see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain registered inside a hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of many domain names simultaneously when you need to point them all to the same webhosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform as the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you would like to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain name to the same account too, not just 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'll be able to manage the NS records of each domain address registered in it effortlessly. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything relevant to your web presence, offers a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all your domain names isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain name and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a couple of clicks. You'll also be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses right now and if they're the ones required to point that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional 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 site, especially if it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain name that you would like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
