The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the most convenient way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will be taken care of 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 edit some of these records, you will be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain point out the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the Internet domain you want to reach. This way the site you'll see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a website hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Website Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered in a website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you merely moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of several domain addresses simultaneously when you intend to forward them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform because the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new 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 name in 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 troubles even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many different domain names within the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the proper ones or not in order for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you have got on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to set up private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
