The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. With this a web 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 web site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the emails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every domain has no less than 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 registered in a shared website hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain address, but even of numerous domain addresses at a time when you need to forward them all to the same hosting company. The very same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform for the reason that transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company website, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain address to the same account too, not just the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When 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 problems even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domain names within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the proper ones or not in order for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you've got on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
