The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain is the most convenient way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will 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, so if you need to change any of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the domain name you want to reach. In this way the web site you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you register a domain name in a cloud website hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to handle its name servers with ease. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names at once, which can save you time and efforts if you have a lot of domain addresses that you would like to forward to another service provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We permit you to set up private name servers for every single Internet domain registered via our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to manage the NS records of every domain name registered in it effortlessly. The Hepsia CP, which is essentially an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything related to your web presence, provides a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section in which you will find all your domain addresses is not an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain address and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a few mouse clicks. You are also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain names uses presently and if they're the ones required to forward that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ 100% free. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly when it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain address which you want to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
