The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers manage 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 direct it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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 forth, so, in case you need to change some of these records, you are going to be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers which 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 domain name you are attempting to access. This way the web site you'll see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a website hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered within a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of many domain names at a time whenever you would like to forward them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you would like to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company site, for instance, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain address to the same account also, besides the one they are created for.
