The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal 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 an Internet 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 name ought to be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every domain name has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name within a cloud web hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to manage its name servers effortlessly. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names at once, which can save you time and efforts when you have a lot of domains that you would like to redirect to an alternative service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Additionally we allow you to set up private name servers for every single domain name registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any issues even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have multiple domain names in the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the right ones or not in order for the domain to be pointed to the account which you have on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to create private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for any other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
