The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain name is the most convenient 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 if you would like to modify any of these records, you'll be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, 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 name you want to access. In this way the website that you will see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company will use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered in a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of numerous domain names at a time in case that you would like to forward them all to the same hosting company. Identical steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer process will not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, for instance, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account as well, not just the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have not had a domain address 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 a number of domain names inside the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which will save you lots of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the correct ones or not for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
