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 particular hosting provider for your domain is the easiest way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will 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 edit some of these records, you are going to be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, 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 get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to reach. This way the website you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least two NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company will use depends solely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
If you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you will be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domain names at the same time, which can save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a large number of domain names that you'd like to direct to another provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. We allow you to create private name servers for each and every domain registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
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 problems even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many domains inside the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which can save you a great deal of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the proper ones or not for the domain to be forwarded to the account which you have on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
