The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. That 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 and the site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the emails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every domain address has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Web Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered in a web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you merely moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of one domain address, but even of several domains at once when you intend to forward them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer procedure is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for an Internet 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 have a company site, for example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain to the same account also, not just the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
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 problems even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have multiple domain names within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they're the proper ones or not for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you've got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for every other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
