The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain name is the most convenient way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), etc, so if you want to edit any one of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, 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 obtain the DNS records of the domain name you are attempting to reach. In this way the site you'll see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered inside a cloud hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of multiple domain addresses at a time in case that you want to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company website, as an example, it's going to 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 also, besides the one they're created for.

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 provider, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domain names within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which could save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you have on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
