The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain address is the easiest way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will be handled on their end. This includes A (the IP address of the server/website), MX (mail server), TXT (free text), SRV (services), CNAME (forwarding), etc, if you would like to change any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it by using 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 retrieve the DNS records of the Internet domain you want to access. In this way the site that you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
If you register a domain name in a cloud website hosting account from our company, you will be able to control its name servers easily. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a couple of clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain addresses at once, which can save you time and efforts in case you have a huge number of domains you want to point to another provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Additionally we permit you to set up private name servers for any domain address registered via our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for every single domain address that is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks via the advanced, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to view the current NS records for a particular domain address and to verify if they are the ones that are required for the domain to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to manage any domain name effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you can also register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain address under which they are created, but also for any other domain that you might want to host in the very same account. This option is very useful if you have clients of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is 100 % free.
