The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain address is the most effective way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will 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 want to edit any of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain name 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 obtain the DNS records of the domain you are trying to reach. This way the website that you will see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least two NS records. There isn't any functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
When you use a cloud hosting from our company and you add a new domain address in the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you're going to be able to handle its NS records easily via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for several domain names simultaneously with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to manage your domain even if it's the first you've ever registered. It requires just a mouse click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to direct a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a few mouse clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each company that you would like the new NS records to forward to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as required without any problems even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domains inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which could save you lots of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be pointed to the account that you have on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
