The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. That way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every 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 Website Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain registered within a cloud website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you just moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not only of one domain address, but even of many domain addresses at the same time whenever you would like to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company website, for instance, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have multiple domains within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which could save you lots of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the correct ones or not as a way for the domain name to be pointed to the account which you have on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for any other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
