The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. In this way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each domain address has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered inside a shared web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of several domain names at the same time whenever you want to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer process doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company website, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain name that is registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few clicks via the sophisticated, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to see the current NS records for a particular domain and to check if they're the ones that are required for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to handle any domain with ease even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can even register private name servers and and use them not only for the domain address under which they're created, but also for any other domain address that you'd like to host within the very same account. This feature is very beneficial if you have clients of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is totally free.
