The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. That way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every single domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain registered within a cloud web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you only moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of numerous domains simultaneously in case that you would like to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you want to set up 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 when you have a company web site, for instance, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain name to the same account too, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many different domain names within the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the proper ones or not as a way for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you have on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to create private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
