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 given host company for your domain address is the most convenient way to point 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 forth, if you wish to edit any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain name you are trying to reach. In this way the site that you're going to see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

When you use a shared website hosting plan from our company and you register a new domain name inside the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you will be able to handle its NS records with ease via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for several domain addresses simultaneously with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to manage your domain address even if it's the first you've ever registered. It requires only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a few mouse clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any company that you want the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to manage the NS records of every domain registered in it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything relevant to your web presence, offers a very simple and intuitive interface. The section in which you will find your domain addresses is not an exception, so even if you have not had a domain address 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're also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domains uses currently and if they are the ones needed to direct that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly when it is a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain address that you would like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
