The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. In this way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the emails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain name has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain address registered inside a shared website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you merely moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of many domains at the same time if you need to forward them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform because the transfer process will not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for instance, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for every domain name that is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the sophisticated, although easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to view the current NS records for a particular domain name and to check if they're the ones that are needed for the domain name to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to control any domain name with ease even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you want, you may also register private name servers and and use them not only for the domain name under which they're set up, but also for any other domain that you might want to host within the very same account. This option is very useful if you have customers 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.
