The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain is the simplest way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records are going to be taken care of 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 would like to edit any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address point out 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 Internet domain 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 each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider is going to use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
If you use a shared web hosting from our company and you include a new domain inside the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you're going to be able to manage its NS records easily through the Hepsia website hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for several domains at the same time with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to control your domain name even if it is the first you have ever registered. It takes just a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of any provider that you would like the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to control the NS records of every domain address registered within it easily. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can manage everything relevant to your web presence, comes with a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find your domain names isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain address and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain addresses uses at the moment and if they are the ones required to direct that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your site, especially if it is a business one, and you may use these name servers for any other domain address which you want to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
