The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in 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 address ought to be retrieved. With this a web 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 required from the correct 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 sent to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every Internet domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain registered inside a cloud hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you merely seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain address, but even of several domain addresses at once in case that you would like to direct them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer process is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain address to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain name in 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 troubles even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many domain names inside the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the correct ones or not for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to create private name servers under any domain 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.
