The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally 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 name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every single domain name has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

If you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to manage its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with only a few mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domains simultaneously, which could save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a lot of domain names you want to redirect to an alternative provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. Furthermore we enable you to create private name servers for each Internet domain registered using our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so when 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

If you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any problems even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domain addresses 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 which a domain uses and if they're the right ones or not as a way for the domain name to be directed to the account that you've got on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
