The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain address is the most convenient way to point 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, so, in case you need to change any of these records, you're going to be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, 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 reach. That way the website that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company is going to use depends entirely on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered within a shared hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of multiple domains simultaneously when you would like to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform since the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you would like to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company web site, 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, besides the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for every domain name which is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the leading-edge, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to view the current NS records for a particular domain and to check if they're the ones that are needed for the domain 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 manage any domain name effortlessly even if you have never 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 only for the domain under which they are set up, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host within the same account. This feature is very beneficial when you have customers of your own and you want their sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is 100 % free.
