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 name is the most convenient way to forward 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), etcetera, if you would like to edit any one of these records, you'll be able to do it via their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain reveal the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the domain you are trying to access. That way the website 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 has at least two NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a website hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered in a cloud hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of many domains at the same time in case that you want to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform because the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company site, for instance, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain address to the same account as well, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domains inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain name to be directed to the account that you have on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to set up private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
