The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the simplest 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 on, so, in case you need to change any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address point out the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to access. In this way the web site that you're going to see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered within a cloud web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you merely seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of many domain names at a time in case that you intend to point them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform for the reason that transfer process does not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, for instance, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain name to the same account also, not only the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any problems even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have several domains in the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you lots of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain name to be directed to the account that you have on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
