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 particular host company for your domain is the easiest way to direct 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), etc, so, in case you wish to modify any of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to access. This way the website you will see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least 2 NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company will use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain registered within a hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of numerous domains simultaneously in case that you intend to direct them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain address to the same account too, besides the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain address in 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 required without any difficulties even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have a number of domain names inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the proper ones or not in order for the domain address to be pointed to the account which you have on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to create private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
