The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain is the most effective 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 forth, so if you would like to edit any of these records, you'll be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name show the DNS servers which 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 web site you'll see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company will use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
When you use a Linux cloud website hosting service from our company and you include a new domain within the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you are going to be able to control its NS records with ease using the Hepsia web hosting CP, provided with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for many domain addresses at the same time with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to control your domain address even if it is the first you've ever registered. It requires only a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain to the hosting space on our end and with a few clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any company that you would like the new NS records to forward to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any issues 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 management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have several domains in the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you lots of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the correct ones or not for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to create private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
