The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. In this 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 IP and the site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every single Internet domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered inside a shared hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you just seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain address, but even of many domain addresses simultaneously if you would like to point them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform for the reason that transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still forward to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain to the same account also, not just the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have multiple domain addresses within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you lots of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the proper ones or not in order for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you've got on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to create private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for any other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
