The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the emails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each and every domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

If you use a cloud web hosting from our us and you register a new domain inside the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you will be able to handle its NS records with ease using the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for a number of domain names simultaneously with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to manage your domain even if it is the first you've ever registered. It takes just a click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to direct a domain to the hosting space on our end and with a few clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each provider that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with very user-friendly interface, that will allow you to manage your domain addresses with ease even when you have never used a web hosting account or a domain address up to now. Changing the NS records for each domain registered using our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are accurate or not as to forward that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also quite easy and takes as little as several clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under every one of your domain names as an element of the free DNS control services which we offer with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for each and every domain address you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their web sites, using this feature is going to give you more credibility as a business.
