The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the emails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain address registered inside a cloud web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of numerous domain addresses at once whenever you need to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The exact same steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer process will not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company site, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account as well, not just the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have several domain names within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the proper ones or not in order for the domain to be forwarded to the account which you have on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to create private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for every other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
