The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain name is the simplest way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), and so forth, so if you would like to change any of these records, you are going to be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address show the DNS servers which 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 you are attempting to reach. That way the web site that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least two NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company will use depends solely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
In case you register a domain name within a cloud hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers without difficulty. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain addresses at a time, which will save you time and efforts if you have a large number of domains that you would like to redirect to an alternative provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We allow you to create private name servers for every single domain name registered using our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time 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 Hosting
When you register a new domain name inside 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 management tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have a number of domains within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which could save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they are the correct ones or not as a way for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you've got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
