The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain name is the most effective 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), and so forth, if you wish 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 address show the DNS servers which 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 attempting to reach. This way the site you will see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider will use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered in a cloud hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you merely moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of several domains simultaneously in case that you want to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer process doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, as an example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain name to the same account also, not just the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain name in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you'll be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domain names inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you a lot of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you have got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to create private name servers under any domain registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
