The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain is the easiest way to direct 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 would like to modify some of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address reveal the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to reach. In this way the website you will see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain address registered inside a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of multiple domains at once whenever you intend to point them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform given that the transfer process does not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account as well, not only the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have several domains inside the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you a great deal of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the proper ones or not for the domain name to be directed to the account that you have on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to create private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for any other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
