The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain is the easiest 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 edit any of these records, you will be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain show 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 domain you are trying to reach. In this way the site you will see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least 2 NS records. There's no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Website Hosting

In case you register a domain name within a website hosting account from our company, you will be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain addresses at the same time, which can save you time and efforts when you have a large number of domain names that you'd like to redirect to a different provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We allow you to create private name servers for every Internet domain registered via our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to handle the NS records of each domain registered inside it effortlessly. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool where you can manage everything relevant to your web presence, comes with a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section in which you will find your domain names isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain address and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a few mouse clicks. You will also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain names uses right now and if they are the ones needed to forward that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/ totally free. This will give more credibility to your site, especially if it's a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain address that you might want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
