The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain address is the most effective way to forward 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, so, in case you want to modify any of these records, you're going to be able to do it using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain point out the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the Internet domain you want to access. This way the web site that you will see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least two NS records. There's no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company is going to use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you register a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to handle its name servers without difficulty. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domains at the same time, which could save you time and efforts if you have a large number of domain addresses that you'd like to direct to another service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. In addition we allow you to set up private name servers for each domain address registered using our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
