The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain address is the most effective way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will be handled on their end. This includes A (the IP address of the server/website), MX (mail server), TXT (free text), SRV (services), CNAME (forwarding), etcetera, so, in case you wish to edit some of these records, you'll be able to do it via 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 Internet domain you want to reach. This way the website you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least two NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider is going to use depends only on their preference.
NS Records in Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered within a hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of several domains at once when you intend to direct them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform given that the transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company website, 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 directing any other domain address to the same account as well, not just the one they're created for.
