The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain name is the simplest way to direct 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 on, so, in case you need to change some of these records, you will be able to do it via their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain you are attempting to reach. That way the web site you will see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records. There's no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company will use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered inside a shared web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Via 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 address, but even of multiple domain names at once whenever you intend to point them all to the same hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform because the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you'll 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, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain address to the same account also, not just the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain address in 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 issues even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes a couple of 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 once, which could save you lots of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the proper ones or not for the domain address to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
