The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain is the most effective way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will 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), etc, so if you would like to edit any of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address reveal 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 are trying to access. That way the site that you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least two NS records. There isn't any functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
When you use a Linux cloud website hosting service from our company and you add a new domain in the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you will be able to handle its NS records effortlessly via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a group of domains simultaneously with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to handle your domain name even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It takes just a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of any provider that you'd like the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for every domain name which is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few clicks using the innovative, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to see the current NS records for a particular domain and to verify if they are the ones that are needed for the domain to be forwarded 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 with ease even if you haven't 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 just for the domain under which they're created, but also for any other domain that you might want to host within the very same account. This option is very beneficial when you have clients of your own and you would like their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is 100 % free.
