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 name, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain address registered within a shared web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of many domains at the same time whenever you would like to point them all to the same hosting company. The very same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform because the transfer process is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account also, besides the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have a number of domain addresses inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you lots of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the proper ones or not for the domain to be pointed to the account that you have got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
