The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. With this 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 proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each domain address has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you register a domain name within a cloud hosting account from our company, you will be able to manage its name servers easily. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domains at once, which can save you time and efforts when you have a huge number of domains you want to forward to an alternative service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Additionally we enable you to create private name servers for every single Internet domain registered via our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain name inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have multiple domain names in the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they're the proper ones or not for the domain name to be directed to the account that you've got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
