The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain is the most convenient way to direct 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 if you wish to change any of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers that 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 name you are trying to access. That way the web site that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least two NS records. There's no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a website hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
If you use a shared hosting from our company and you add a new domain address within the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you are going to be able to handle its NS records easily via the Hepsia web hosting CP, offered with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a number of domains simultaneously with several clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to control your domain even if it is the first one you've ever registered. It requires just a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any provider that you want the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to manage the NS records of every domain registered in it easily. The Hepsia CP, which is essentially an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything relevant to your web presence, offers a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find all your domains is not 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 is not going to take you more than a few clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain addresses uses right now and if they're the ones required 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/ at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your site, especially when it's a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain address that you would like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
