The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the group of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain name has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain registered inside a cloud web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you merely moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of multiple domains at the same time whenever you intend to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer process is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, for instance, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account too, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each and every domain name that's registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the advanced, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as simple to view the current NS records for a specific domain and to determine if they are the ones that are necessary for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to manage any domain name with ease even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you can also register private name servers and and use them not only for the domain address under which they're set up, but also for any other domain that you might want to host within the exact same account. This feature is very handy if you have clients of your own and you would like their websites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is free of charge.
