The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers handle 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 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), and so forth, if you wish to edit some of these records, you will be able to do it through their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain point out 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 name you are trying to access. That way the web site you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least two NS records. There isn't any functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company will use depends entirely on their preference.
NS Records in Hosting
If you use a hosting from our us and you include a new domain inside the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you are going to be able to control its NS records with ease via the Hepsia 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 several domain addresses at the same time with several clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to manage your domain address even if it's the first one you've ever registered. It takes merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each provider that you would like the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many different domain names inside the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the proper ones or not in order for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to create private name servers under any domain registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
