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 specific host company for your domain name is the most convenient way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will 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 want to modify 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 point out 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 you are trying to reach. In this way the web site that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a website hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered in a cloud web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you merely moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of numerous domain addresses at the same time in case that you need to direct them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform because the transfer procedure will not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you would like to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain to the same account too, not only the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for every domain address that's registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the leading-edge, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as easy to see the current NS records for a given domain address and to verify if they are the ones that are necessary for the domain name to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to handle any domain name with ease even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you may even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they're set up, but also for any other domain that you would like to host in the exact same account. This option is very useful when you have customers of your own and you would like their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is 100 % free.
