The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain name is the easiest way to forward 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), etc, so if you need to edit any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address reveal the DNS servers which 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 attempting to reach. This way the website that you're going to see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least two NS records. There isn't any functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company will use depends solely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain address registered in a cloud hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you just moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of multiple domain names at once whenever you want to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer process will not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company website, as an example, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain to the same account too, not just the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with highly user-friendly interface, that will allow you to manage your domains with ease even if you haven't used a hosting account or a domain address previously. Changing the NS records for each domain address registered using our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are right or not as to point that domain name to our cloud hosting platform is also quite simple and requires just a few mouse clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain names as part of the free DNS administration services we offer you with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for any domain name that you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their sites, employing this feature will give you far more credibility as a business.
