The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain name is the simplest way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will be taken care of 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 want to modify any of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain point out 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 domain you want to reach. That way the site you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company is going to use depends solely on their preference.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered within a shared hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of multiple domain names simultaneously whenever you want to direct them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company site, for instance, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account too, not just the one they're created for.
