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 particular host company for your domain name is the simplest way to point 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 on, if you wish to modify some of these records, you are going to be able to do it using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to reach. That way the website you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered within a cloud hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of many domain addresses at a time if you would like to point them all to the same webhosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform because the transfer procedure is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company website, for example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account too, besides the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with incredibly user-friendly interface, which will enable you to manage your domain names effortlessly even if you have not used a web hosting account or a domain up to now. Changing the NS records for any domain registered through our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are accurate or not as to point that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also quite easy and requires as little as several clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain addresses as part of the free DNS management services we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for each and every domain which you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their web sites, using this feature will give you more credibility as a business.
