The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain name is the easiest way to direct 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), etcetera, so, in case you would like to edit some of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain name you are trying to access. That way the website you will see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider is going to use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered inside a cloud website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of multiple domains at once whenever you need to forward them all to the same hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform given that the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still forward to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain name to the same account as well, not just the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for every single domain address which is registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few clicks via the innovative, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to see the current NS records for a particular domain name and to determine if they're the ones that are required for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to control any domain address with ease even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you can also register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain address under which they're created, but also for any other domain that you would like to host inside the very same account. This feature is very handy if you have clients of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
