The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company 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), etcetera, so if you would like to change any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. In other words, 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 get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to reach. In this way the web site you'll see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company is going to use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered inside a hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of many domain addresses at once if you need to point them all to the same hosting company. Identical steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, for example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account also, besides the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain name inside 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 needed without any issues 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, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have a number of domain names inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which will save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the right ones or not in order for the domain address to be directed to the account which you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
