The NS (Name Server) records of a domain 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 an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. With this a web 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 finds out which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every Internet domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names at once, which can save you considerable time and efforts if you have a huge number of domains you want to direct to an alternative provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. In addition we enable you to create private name servers for each domain registered with our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for example, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have several domain addresses inside the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which can save you a great deal of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the proper ones or not as a way for the domain to be pointed to the account that you have on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to set up private name servers under any domain registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
