The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the group of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single domain name has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain address registered inside a cloud 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 CP, you will be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of numerous domain addresses at once when you would like to forward them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform given that the transfer process will not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you want to set up private name servers for a domain name 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 web site, as an 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 directing any other domain address to the same account also, not only the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with incredibly user-friendly interface, that will help you control your domains without difficulty even when you haven't used a hosting account or a domain name up to now. Changing the NS records for any domain registered through our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are accurate or not as to forward that domain name to our cloud hosting platform is also quite simple and takes as little as a few clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain addresses as part of the free DNS management services that we offer you with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for any domain address you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their websites, employing this feature is going to give you a lot more credibility as a business.
