The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out 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 most convenient way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records are going to be handled 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, if you would like to change some of these records, you are going to be able to do it through their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address show 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 want to access. In this way the site you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least 2 NS records. There's no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company is going to use depends solely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud hosting products, will permit you to control the name servers of each domain name registered through our company with only a few mouse clicks, so even though you may have never had a hosting plan or a domain before, you'll not encounter any difficulties. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and will allow you to modify the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain names simultaneously. We provide you with the chance to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each and every domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you'll use the child NS to direct the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to redirect the domain name to their system. Different from other companies, we don't charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to control the NS records of each domain name registered inside it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to manage everything related to your web presence, comes with a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section in which you will find all of your domain addresses is not an exception, so even if you have not had a domain and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses right now and if they are the ones required to forward that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly when it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain address that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
