The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain address is the most effective 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 need to edit some of these records, you're going to be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the domain name you want to reach. That way the web site that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider will use depends only 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 will be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with only a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain addresses at the same time, which could save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a lot of domains that you'd like to redirect to an alternative service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Furthermore we allow you to create private name servers for every Internet domain registered with our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for instance, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to control the NS records of any domain name registered inside it without difficulty. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything associated with your web presence, comes with a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section in which you will find all of your domains is not an exception, so even if you have not had a domain and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You'll also be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses at the moment and if they are the ones required to direct that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly if it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain name that you might want to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
