The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. That way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you register a domain name inside a cloud web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with only a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain names at the same time, which could save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names you want to direct to another provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We also enable you to create private name servers for each and every domain name registered with our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for every domain that is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few clicks using the leading-edge, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to view the current NS records for a particular domain address and to determine if they're the ones that are required for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to handle any domain with ease even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you may also register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain name under which they're set up, but also for any other domain that you might want to host within the same account. This option is very useful if you have clients of your own and you would like their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is 100 % free.
