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 given host company for your domain is the easiest way to direct 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 on, so if you would like to change any one of these records, you're 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 obtain the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to reach. That way the site you'll see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least 2 NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider is going to use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
If you use a cloud website hosting service from our us and you register a new domain name inside the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you'll be able to handle its NS records easily through the Hepsia website hosting CP, offered with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for many domains at the same time with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to handle your domain name even if it is the first you have ever registered. It requires simply a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any provider that you would like the new NS records to point to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain name 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 needed without any troubles even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many different domain addresses inside the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the correct ones or not in order for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you've got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to create private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for every other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
