The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain is the easiest way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will 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), and so forth, if you need to edit 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 name reveal the DNS servers which 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. In this way the website that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least 2 NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a website hosting provider is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain registered inside a shared hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you merely moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of multiple domains at a time whenever you want to direct them all to the same hosting company. Identical steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer process does not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for instance, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain address to the same account also, besides the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain name 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 have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many different domains inside the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain name to be directed to the account that you have on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
