The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain name is the simplest way to forward 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 forth, if you need to modify any one of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain 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 web site that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least 2 NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company will use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Website Hosting
In case you register a domain name inside a website hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers without difficulty. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain names at once, which will save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a huge number of domains that you'd like to point to an alternative provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Furthermore we permit you to set up private name servers for any domain name registered with our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
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 will be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domain addresses in the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which could save you a great deal of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the correct ones or not as a way for the domain address to be directed to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to create private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
