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 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), and so on, if you need to edit any of these records, you are going to be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that 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 are attempting to reach. In this way the site that you will see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There is no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
In the event you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain addresses simultaneously, which can save you time and efforts when you have a huge number of domains you want to redirect to an alternative service provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We allow you to set up private name servers for each domain address registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
