The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, 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 address is the most effective way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will 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), etcetera, so, in case you would like to edit any of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. To put it differently, 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 domain you want to reach. In this way the site that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least two NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll be able to handle its name servers easily. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a couple of clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain addresses at once, which can save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domain addresses that you'd like to redirect to a different service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Additionally we allow you to set up private name servers for every single domain address registered using our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs in particular, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to control the NS records of any domain address registered within it easily. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can manage everything related to your web presence, provides a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section in which you will find all of your domain addresses is not an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domains uses right now and if they are the ones needed to point that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your website, especially when it's a business one, and you may use these name servers for any other domain address that you'd like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
