The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain name is the simplest way to point it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), etc, if you wish to edit some of these records, you are going to be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain you are trying to reach. That way the site that you're going to see will 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 absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered within a cloud 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're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of numerous domain addresses simultaneously in case that you need to point them all to the same webhosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer process does not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company website, 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 redirecting any other domain name to the same account as well, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have several domain names inside the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which could save you lots of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the right ones or not for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you've got on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
