The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain is the simplest way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records are going to be handled on their end. This includes A (the IP address of the server/website), MX (mail server), TXT (free text), SRV (services), CNAME (forwarding), etc, if you need to edit any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the domain name you are trying to access. That way the web site that you will see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There's no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In the event you register a domain name within a cloud hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain names at a time, which can save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a large number of domain addresses that you would like to forward to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Additionally we enable you to create private name servers for every domain name registered through our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many different domain addresses in the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
