The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given 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, if you would like to change some of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to access. This way the site that you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
When you use a Linux shared website hosting service from our us and you add a new domain in the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you'll be able to control its NS records easily using the Hepsia website hosting CP, provided with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a group of domains at the same time with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to control your domain name even if it is the first one you've ever registered. It takes merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of 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 IPs of each and every provider that you want the new NS records to point to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're going to be able to handle the NS records of any domain registered inside it effortlessly. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can handle everything related to your web presence, provides a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all of your domain names isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain name and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You'll also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain addresses uses right now and if they're the ones required to direct that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly when it's a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain that you'd like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
