The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the range of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is required from the correct 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 right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single domain name has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain registered inside a cloud hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you only seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of many domains simultaneously if you need to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform given that the transfer process doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company site, for example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account too, not only the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to handle the NS records of each domain address registered in it without difficulty. The Hepsia CP, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can handle everything associated with your web presence, provides a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find all your domains isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a few clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domains uses presently and if they are the ones needed to direct that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/ 100% free. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly if it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
