The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain address is the most effective way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records are going to be managed 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 would like to modify any of these records, you'll be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain show 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 you are attempting to reach. This way the site that you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least 2 NS records. There's no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider will use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered within a cloud website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of numerous domains at the same time whenever you need to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. The exact same steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domain names 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 few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company website, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain address to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to manage the NS records of any domain registered inside it without difficulty. The Hepsia CP, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can manage everything associated with your web presence, offers a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section in which you will find all of your domain names is not an exception, so even if you have not had a domain and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of clicks. You're also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain addresses uses at the moment and if they are the ones required to forward that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we present you with opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com totally free. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly if it is a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain address that you'd like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
