The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. 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 web site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single domain address has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain name registered within a cloud hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of numerous domains at a time when you would like to point them all to the same webhosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform as the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, for example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain to the same account also, not just the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have a number of domain addresses within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you've got on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to create private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
