The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain is the most effective way to point 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, in case you would like to change some of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain reveal 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 domain you want to reach. This way the web site that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least 2 NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company is going to use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered inside a cloud web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you only moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of many domain addresses simultaneously whenever you want to point them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform for the reason that transfer process will not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, for example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain to the same account as well, not just the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any issues even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many domains inside the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the proper ones or not in order for the domain name to be directed to the account that you've got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to set up private name servers under any domain registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
