The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain address is the most convenient way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records are going to be managed 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, so if you wish to modify any of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain 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 obtain the DNS records of the domain name you want to reach. In this way the website you'll see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered inside a cloud hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain address, but even of many domain names at once in case that you need to point them all to the same hosting company. Identical steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform for the reason that transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company web site, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain name to the same account too, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain name in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domain names in the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the correct ones or not as a way for the domain address to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to set up private name servers under any domain registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
