The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain name is the easiest way to point 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 on, so if you want to change any one of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain reveal the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the domain you want to reach. This way the website you will see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Web Hosting

When you use a web hosting from our company and you include a new domain name within the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you are going to be able to control its NS records easily through the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for a number of domains at a time with several mouse clicks. This is done via 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 even if it is the first you have ever registered. It takes only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to forward a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a few mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of every company that you'd like the new NS records to direct to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to handle the NS records of any domain name registered within it without difficulty. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to deal with everything related to your web presence, comes with a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find your domain addresses isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain name and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a couple of clicks. You will also be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain names uses presently and if they are the ones needed 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 web site, especially if it is a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain which you want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
