The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers manage 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 direct it to their system and all its sub-records will be managed 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, if you would like to edit some of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain 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 are trying to access. In this way the site that you will see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
In the event you register a domain name inside a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain addresses at the same time, which will save you time and efforts if you have a huge number of domain names that you would like to forward to another provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. We also permit you to set up private name servers for each and every domain registered with our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with extremely user-friendly interface, which will permit you to handle your domain addresses without difficulty even when you haven't used a web hosting account or a domain previously.
