The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain name is the most convenient way to forward 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), etcetera, so, in case you wish to modify any one of these records, you'll be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address point out the DNS servers which 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 domain you are trying to reach. This way the website that you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least 2 NS records. There's no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered within a cloud website hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you just moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain address, but even of many domain addresses at the same time whenever you intend to point them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform for the reason that transfer process isn't going to 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 will be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain address to the same account also, not just the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for each and every domain address which is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the sophisticated, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to view the current NS records for a given domain address and to check if they're the ones that are required for the domain name to be forwarded 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'd like, you may even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they're created, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host in the very same account. This feature is very useful when you have customers of your own and you want their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is totally free.
