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 address is the simplest way to direct 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 on, so, in case you want to edit any of these records, you are going to be able to do it via 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 Internet domain you are trying to access. In this way the web site that you will see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least 2 NS records. There's no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider will use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered in a cloud hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you only seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of numerous domains at once in case that you want to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. Identical steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer process does not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you want to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company site, for example, it will 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 address to the same account too, besides the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for every domain that's registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few clicks via the advanced, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to view the current NS records for a particular domain and to determine if they are the ones that are necessary for the domain to be forwarded 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 effortlessly even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain name under which they're set up, but also for any other domain address that you'd like to host inside the exact same account. This feature is very handy when you have customers of your own and you want their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is totally free.
