The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the group of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Web Hosting
If you register a domain name within a web hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers easily. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names at a time, which will save you time and efforts if you have a large number of domain addresses that you would like to direct to an alternative provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. In addition we permit you to create private name servers for every single domain address registered via our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for instance, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you have not had a domain address 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 many different domain addresses within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which could save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the proper ones or not in order for the domain name to be directed to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
