The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain address is the simplest way to forward 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), and so on, if you wish to modify any of these records, you'll be able to do it by using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers which 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 name you are trying to access. In this way the web site that you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a website hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
If you register a domain name inside a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names at a time, which can save you time and efforts if you have a lot of domain names that you'd like to direct to another service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We also enable you to create private name servers for any Internet domain registered with our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many different domain addresses within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which will save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the proper ones or not for the domain address to be forwarded to the account which you have on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
