The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the emails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you use a cloud hosting service from our us and you include a new domain name in the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you're going to be able to control its NS records effortlessly using the Hepsia web hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for a number of domains simultaneously with several clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to manage your domain name even if it's the first you've ever registered. It takes simply a click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a few mouse clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each and every provider that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain name 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 required without any difficulties even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domains within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a great deal of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
