The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider 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 on, so, in case you wish to edit some of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain address reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain name you are trying to reach. This way the site that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least two NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company will use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain address registered inside a cloud hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you only moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of numerous domain addresses at a time in case that you intend to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. Identical steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform because the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you would like to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you'll 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 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 name to the same account too, besides the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain name in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, 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 few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many domains in the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you lots of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the correct ones or not as a way for the domain name to be directed to the account that you have got on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered within 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.
