The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain address is the simplest 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, so if you want to edit some of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address show the DNS servers which 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 website 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 domain has at least two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
When you use a shared web hosting plan from our us and you add a new domain inside the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you'll be able to handle its NS records easily via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for several domain addresses at once with several 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 easy to manage your domain address even if it's 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 point a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with a few clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each and every provider that you want the new NS records to point to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domain addresses inside the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the proper ones or not in order for the domain address to be forwarded to the account that you've got on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to create private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
