The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain address 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 on, so if you would like to change any one of these records, you will be able to do it via their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain name you want to reach. This way the site that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least two NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered inside a cloud web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of multiple domain addresses at once in case that you want to point them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company site, as an example, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account also, besides the one they are created for.
