The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain address is the simplest way to direct 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 if you want to modify some of these records, you are going to be able to do it via their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address reveal the DNS servers that 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 name you want to reach. In this way the website you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain registered inside a shared web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you merely moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain address, but even of numerous domains at a time whenever you intend to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The exact same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer procedure won't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company website, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain to the same account as well, besides the one they're created for.
