The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain 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), etcetera, so if you need to edit any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain name show 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 domain name you are trying to reach. This way the website that you will see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least two NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company will use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain registered in a shared web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you merely seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of many domain names simultaneously in case that you would like to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. Identical steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company web site, for example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain name to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to manage the NS records of every domain registered in it easily. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool where you can control everything relevant to your web presence, comes with a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section in which you will find all your domain addresses isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain name and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a couple of clicks. You will also be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses currently and if they are the ones needed to forward that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ 100% free. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly when it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain name that you'd like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
