The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain address is the easiest 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 forth, if you wish to edit any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address reveal the DNS servers which 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 want to access. This way the website you'll see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company will use depends entirely on their preference.
NS Records in Hosting
If you register a domain name in a hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to control its name servers with ease. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain names at the same time, which can save you time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain addresses you want to forward to a different service provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. We allow you to create private name servers for every domain registered through our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with extremely user-friendly interface, that will enable you to control your domains effortlessly even when you have not used a hosting account or a domain up to now. Changing the NS records for each domain name registered with our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are accurate or not as to point that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also quite simple and takes just several mouse clicks. You are also going to be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domains as an element of the free DNS management services which we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain address you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their web sites, using this feature will give you far more credibility as a business.
