The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain name is the simplest 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 if you want to change some of these records, you're going to be able to do it using their system. Put simply, 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 trying to reach. In this way the site that you'll 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 practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered inside a shared web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you just seconds. 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 many domains at the same time when you need to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer process is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still forward to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company website, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain to the same account too, besides the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for any domain name that's registered through us could be changed with no more than a few clicks through the sophisticated, although easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to view the current NS records for a particular domain name and to verify if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to manage any domain effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you want, you may even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain name under which they're set up, but also for any other domain name that you would like to host within the very same account. This option is very handy when you have clients of your own and you would like their sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
