The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain name is the most convenient way to forward 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), and so on, so if you wish to edit any one of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address reveal 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 are trying to reach. In this way the web site that you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain registered within a hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you only seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of numerous domains at a time when you would like to forward them all to the same webhosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform given that the transfer process doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company site, for instance, 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 to the same account also, not only the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to handle the NS records of each domain registered inside it without difficulty. The Hepsia CP, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can deal with everything related to your web presence, comes with a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find all of your domains isn't an exception, so even if you haven't 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 few mouse clicks. You will also be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain names uses currently and if they are the ones needed to direct that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ totally free. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly if it is a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain that you might want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
