The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the easiest way to point 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), and so forth, so if you want to change any of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain 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 domain you are trying to access. That way the website that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered within a cloud website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of multiple domain names at once when you would like to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform as the transfer procedure won't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still direct to the old host. If you would like to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company site, for example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain address to the same account also, not only the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you want, you can even register private name servers and and use them not only for the domain name under which they are created, but also for any other domain address that you'd like to host within the very same account. This option is very useful when you have clients of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
