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 hosting provider for your domain address is the most convenient way to point 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), etcetera, so if you want to modify any of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address reveal 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 you want to access. This way the website that you're going to see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally 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 web hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
When you use a cloud hosting from our us and you register a new domain name inside the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you'll be able to handle its NS records easily through the Hepsia hosting CP, 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 a group of domains at the same time with several clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to manage your domain name even if it's the first you have ever registered. It takes merely a click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each provider that you want 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 are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have several domain names within the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you lots of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they're the correct ones or not as a way for the domain address to be pointed to the account which you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for any other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
