The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain is the easiest way to direct 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), etc, if you would like to modify any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain address show the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the domain you want 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 each and every domain has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no practical 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 Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered within a cloud hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you just moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain address, but even of multiple domain names at the same time if you need to point them all to the same website hosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of 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 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.
