The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain name is the simplest way to forward 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 want to change some of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the domain name you are attempting to access. That way the website you will see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a website hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Website Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain name registered inside a website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of numerous domains simultaneously in case that you would like to point them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still direct to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company site, as an example, it will 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 also, not just the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for any domain address that is registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the advanced, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as simple to see the current NS records for a particular domain address and to determine if they are the ones that are required for the domain address to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to control any domain name easily even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you may also register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain address under which they are set up, but also for any other domain address that you might want to host within the very same account. This option is very useful if you have customers of your own and you want their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
