The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers deal with 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 point it to their system and all its sub-records will 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), and so forth, so if you wish to change some of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain point out the DNS servers which 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 want to access. In this way the web site that you'll see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered within a cloud web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of numerous domain addresses simultaneously if you need to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform given that the transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, for instance, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account also, besides the one they're created for.
