The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain is the most convenient way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will 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), etc, so, in case you wish to modify any of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers that 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. In this way the site you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least two NS records. There isn't any practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered within a shared hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of multiple domains at a time whenever you need to forward them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer process does not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company web site, for 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 forwarding any other domain to the same account also, besides the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for every single domain name that's registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the leading-edge, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to see the current NS records for a given domain and to verify if they are the ones that are necessary for the domain address to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to control any domain name with ease even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you may even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they are set up, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host inside the same account. This option is very useful if you have clients of your own and you would like their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available 100 % free.
