The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the most effective 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, in case you want to edit some of these records, you are going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the domain you are trying to access. In this way the web site that you will see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least two NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you register a domain name within a cloud hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to handle its name servers without difficulty. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domains at the same time, which will save you considerable time and efforts when you have a lot of domain names you want to redirect to an alternative service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. In addition we permit you to create private name servers for every domain name registered using our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
