The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain name is the most effective way to forward 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 if you wish to edit any of these records, you're going to be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, 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 get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to reach. That way the site you will see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider will use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
In case you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domains at once, which can save you considerable time and efforts when you have a large number of domain addresses that you would like to forward to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. In addition we allow you to set up private name servers for each and every domain registered via our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain inside 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 needed without any issues even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domain addresses within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which will save you a lot of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they're the correct ones or not in order for the domain to be pointed to the account which you have on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
