The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. In 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 right location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every single Internet domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

If you register a domain name in a cloud website hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers effortlessly. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain names at the same time, which will save you considerable time and efforts when you have a large number of domain addresses that you would like to redirect to another service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. Additionally we enable you to create private name servers for each domain registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domain addresses within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you a lot of time and clicks. Also 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 address to be directed to the account that you've got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
