The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. In this way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the emails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each and every domain name has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered within a shared hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of multiple domain addresses at once whenever you intend to point them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform because the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you wish 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 instance, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain to the same account as well, not only the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each and every domain address that is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the advanced, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to see the current NS records for a specific domain name and to check if they are the ones that are necessary for the domain address to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to manage any domain effortlessly even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can also register private name servers and and use them not only for the domain under which they're created, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host inside the exact same account. This feature is very handy if you have clients of your own and you want their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available absolutely free.
