The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name 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 is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every Internet domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Web Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain address registered in a web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you only moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of many domains at a time when you need to direct them all to the same hosting company. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform given that the transfer process doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, as an example, it will 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 name to the same account as well, not just the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for any domain that's registered through us could be changed with no more than a few clicks from the sophisticated, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to view the current NS records for a given domain and to verify if they are the ones that are needed for the domain address to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to control any domain with ease even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they are set up, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host in the very same account. This option is very handy when you have clients of your own and you want their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available totally free.
