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 hosting provider for your domain is the easiest way to point it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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, so if you would like to modify some of these records, you'll be able to do it by using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that 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 domain name you are trying to access. In this way the site that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Hosting
In the event you register a domain name inside a hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to manage its name servers easily. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain names at once, which can save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain addresses that you'd like to forward to a different provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Additionally we enable you to create private name servers for each and every Internet domain registered via our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have multiple domain names inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain 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 have got on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
