The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain address is the easiest 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 would like to change some of these records, you'll be able to do it using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain point out 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 Internet domain you are attempting to access. This way the website you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a website hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Website Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain registered within a website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Using 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 one domain, but even of multiple domain names at the same time when you would like to direct them all to the same hosting company. The very same steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform given that the transfer procedure won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still direct to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, as an example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain address to the same account too, not just the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain name inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domain names within the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you lots of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the proper ones or not as a way for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for any other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
