The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the easiest way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records will 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 one of these records, you are going to be able to do it using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain 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 retrieve the DNS records of the domain name you are attempting to reach. In this way the web site that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least two NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company will use depends solely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
If you register a domain name within a cloud website hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to manage its name servers effortlessly. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain names at a time, which will save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domains that you'd like to redirect to another provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We enable you to set up private name servers for any domain name registered using our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain 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 domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're going to be able to control the NS records of any domain registered inside it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can handle everything associated with your web presence, provides a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all of your domain addresses isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain name and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a few mouse clicks. You're 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 are the ones needed to forward that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ free of charge. This will give more credibility to your web site, especially when it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain address that you might want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
