The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain address is the most effective 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), etcetera, so, in case you want to modify any one of these records, you will be able to do it through their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain address reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to reach. This way the site you'll see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
If you use a cloud website hosting from our company and you include a new domain name inside the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you will be able to manage its NS records easily through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for many domain addresses simultaneously with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to manage your domain name even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It takes merely a click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each and every company that you'd like the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domain names within the account, you'll be able to update all of them at once, which can save you a great deal of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the proper ones or not as a way for the domain to be directed to the account that you have got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to create 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 would like to point to our cloud platform.
