The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the group of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. That way a 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 requested from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each domain name has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain registered in a cloud hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you only seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain name, but even of numerous domain names at the same time in case that you need to point them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domains to our platform for the reason that transfer process does not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company web site, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain address to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.

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're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domains in the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they're the right ones or not for the domain name to be directed to the account which you have on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
