The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain address is the most effective 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), etc, so, in case you would like to edit any one 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 show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to access. That way the web site that you're going to see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least 2 NS records. There's no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider will use depends entirely on their preference.
NS Records in Web Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain registered inside a web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you just seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of several domains simultaneously if you would like to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform for the reason that transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company site, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain to the same account too, not only the one they're created for.
