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 collection of all records for the domain name, 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 address must be retrieved. With this 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 required from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each domain name has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Website Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain address registered within a website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of one domain address, but even of multiple domains at the same time in case that you want to forward them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer procedure will not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still forward to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company site, as an example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain to the same account also, not just the one they are 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 control the NS records of any domain address registered in it easily. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool where you can handle everything relevant to your web presence, comes with a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section where you will find all of your domains isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain address and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain addresses uses presently and if they are the ones needed to forward that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com 100% free. This will give more credibility to your site, especially if it's a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain that you'd like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
