The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, 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 address 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, so, in case you need to modify any of these records, you're going to be able to do it using their system. Put simply, 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 domain you want to reach. That way the web site that you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a website hosting provider is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
In case you register a domain name in a shared web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain addresses at a time, which could save you considerable time and efforts when you have a large number of domain addresses that you'd like to forward to an alternative provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Additionally we enable you to create private name servers for each and every domain address registered with our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have not had a domain 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 packages. If you have many domains within the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the right ones or not for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for any other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
