The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should 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 website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you register a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with only a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domains at a time, which will save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names you want to point to another provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Additionally we permit you to set up private name servers for every Internet domain registered through our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so if 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 Servers

When you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any issues even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domain names within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which can save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the right ones or not in order for the domain address to be forwarded to the account which you have on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
