The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain address is the most effective way to point 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 on, so if you want to edit any one of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that 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 want to access. That way the site that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company will use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered inside a shared hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you merely moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of many domain addresses at the same time if you would like to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer procedure will not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you would like to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for instance, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain to the same account too, besides the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for every domain name that is registered through us may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the leading-edge, although easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to see the current NS records for a specific domain name and to determine if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to control any domain easily even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you can even register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain under which they are set up, but also for any other domain that you might want to host in the same account. This option is very handy when you have clients of your own and you want their web sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is free of charge.
