The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address 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 IP and the website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single domain address has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, you'll be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain addresses at the same time, which can save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a lot of domains that you would like to redirect to an alternative service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We permit you to create private name servers for every Internet domain registered using our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domain names inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them at once, which can save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the proper ones or not for the domain to be directed to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
