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 given host company for your domain address is the easiest way to direct 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), etcetera, so, in case you wish to modify any of these records, you will be able to do it via their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain you are attempting to access. This way the site that you will see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least two NS records. There isn't any functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered within a cloud web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you merely moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of several domains simultaneously whenever you intend to forward them all to the same webhosting provider. The exact same steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain to the same account too, besides the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with incredibly user-friendly interface, which will help you manage your domains without difficulty even if you have not used a hosting account or a domain name previously. Changing the NS records for any domain address registered with our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are accurate or not as to direct that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also quite easy and requires just a few mouse clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under any of your domains as a part of the free DNS control services we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for each and every domain address you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their websites, employing this feature will give you far more credibility as a business.
