The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain name 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), etcetera, if you need to modify any of these records, you're going to be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain point out the DNS servers that 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 Internet domain you are attempting to access. That way the web site you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Web Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain address registered in a web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you only seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain name, but even of multiple domain names at a time when you need to forward them all to the same hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform because the transfer procedure will not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still direct 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 a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case 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 redirecting any other domain name to the same account as well, not just the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain that is registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the advanced, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to see the current NS records for a given domain name and to determine if they are the ones that are required for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to handle any domain address effortlessly even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain under which they are created, but also for any other domain that you might want to host within the very same account. This option is very handy if you have customers of your own and you want their websites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
