The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the emails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is done 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 example. Each and every domain name has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name within a web hosting account from our company, you will be able to manage its name servers with ease. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain addresses at a time, which can save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a huge number of domain addresses that you'd like to redirect to another service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. Furthermore we enable you to set up private name servers for each and every domain name registered using our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for every domain name which is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few clicks using the innovative, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to view the current NS records for a specific domain address and to determine if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain name to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to manage any domain name effortlessly even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you can also register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain name under which they're set up, but also for any other domain name that you might want to host inside the very same account. This option is very beneficial if you have clients of your own and you wish their sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available absolutely free.
