The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out 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 inside a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Website Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered inside a website hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of numerous domain addresses at a time if you want to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. The exact same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform since the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company site, for instance, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain address to the same account also, not just the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for any domain address which is registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few clicks from the innovative, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as easy to see the current NS records for a specific domain name and to check if they are the ones that are needed for the domain to be pointed 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 easily even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you may even register private name servers and and use them not only for the domain under which they are created, but also for any other domain that you'd like to host inside the very same account. This option is very handy when you have clients of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
