The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain 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), etcetera, so if you want to modify any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers which 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 attempting to reach. In this way the web site that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
If you register a domain name within a cloud website hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to handle its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domain names at once, which could save you time and efforts when you have a lot of domain names that you would like to point to an alternative service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We also enable you to set up private name servers for each domain name registered through our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything more 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 instance, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
