The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address 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 IP and the web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to control its name servers easily. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain addresses at a time, which will save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a lot of domain names that you would like to direct to another provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. Furthermore we allow you to set up private name servers for any domain name registered through our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each and every domain address that's registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few clicks via the innovative, although easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to view the current NS records for a given domain and to determine if they're the ones that are necessary 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 enable you to control any domain name with ease even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you may also register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain address under which they are created, but also for any other domain that you would like to host in the very same account. This feature is very useful when you have customers of your own and you want their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is totally free.
