The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers manage 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 point 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 on, if you want to modify any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain name show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the domain name you want to access. This way the website that you'll see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a website hosting provider is going to use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain registered in a cloud website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you just moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of many domain names simultaneously whenever you need to point them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform because the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still forward to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain address 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 if you have a company website, as an example, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account too, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain name which is registered through us may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the leading-edge, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as simple to view the current NS records for a specific domain name and to determine 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 permit you to handle any domain address effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you want, you may even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain address under which they're set up, but also for any other domain that you might want to host in the exact same account. This option is very beneficial 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 absolutely free.
