The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain address is the simplest way to direct 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), and so forth, so if you would like to change any of these records, you're going to be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name show the DNS servers that 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 you want to access. This way the site that you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain registered within a shared web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you merely moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of numerous domain names at a time when you intend to forward them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform since the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company site, as an example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain to the same account as well, not just the one they're created for.
