The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain address is the simplest way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will 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, in case you want to edit some of these records, you'll be able to do it through their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the domain you are trying to reach. In this way the site you'll see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least two NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a website hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered within a cloud web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you just moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of numerous domains at a time when you want to forward them all to the same webhosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform for the reason that transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company site, for example, it'll 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 too, not only the one they're created for.
