The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out 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 PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. In this way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain name has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In the event you register a domain name within a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll be able to handle its name servers easily. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain addresses at the same time, which can save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domain addresses that you would like to redirect to an alternative service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We permit you to set up private name servers for every single domain name registered through our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each and every domain address that is registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few clicks via the innovative, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to view the current NS records for a given domain and to determine if they're the ones that are required for the domain name to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to control any domain name effortlessly even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain address under which they are created, but also for any other domain that you'd like to host in the very same account. This feature is very useful if you have customers of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
