The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. In this way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the website content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the right mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each Internet domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

When you use a cloud website hosting service from our company and you register a new domain name within the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you are going to be able to manage its NS records effortlessly via the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for many domain names at a time with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it easy to handle your domain even if it's the first one you've ever registered. It requires just a mouse click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to point a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each and every company that you would like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for every single domain address that is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the innovative, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as easy to view the current NS records for a specific domain and to verify if they are the ones that are necessary for the domain name 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 manage any domain easily even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you may 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're created, but also for any other domain that you'd like to host in the very same account. This option is very beneficial if you have customers of your own and you would like their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is 100 % free.
