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 given host company for your domain address is the most convenient 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), etc, so, in case you would like to edit some of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address 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 name you are attempting to reach. That way the web site you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least two NS records. There's no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider is going to use depends only on their preference.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In case you register a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domains at the same time, which can save you time and efforts in case you have a lot of domain names you want to redirect to another service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. We also enable you to set up private name servers for every domain name registered through our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
