The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers handle 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 direct it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), and so forth, so, in case you want to change some of these records, you are going to be able to do it via their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name show 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 domain you are attempting to access. This way the website you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least two NS records. There's no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a website hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered inside a cloud hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you merely moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain name, but even of many domain addresses simultaneously if you want to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you would like to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company site, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain address to the same account too, besides the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with incredibly user-friendly interface, that will allow you to handle your domain addresses easily even if you have not used a web hosting account or a domain name before. Changing the NS records for any domain address registered using our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are right or not as to forward that domain name to our cloud hosting platform is also quite simple and requires just a couple of mouse clicks. You will also be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain addresses as a part of the free DNS control services that we offer with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain name you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their websites, employing this feature will give you much more credibility as a business.
