The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. With this a 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 website content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every Internet domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered in a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you only seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain name, but even of numerous domains at once if you would like to point them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform given that the transfer process is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still forward to the old host. If you would like to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company site, for instance, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain to the same account as well, not just the one they're 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 provider, you'll be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have a number of domain names within the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a great deal of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the correct ones or not in order for the domain address to be directed to the account that you have got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
