The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. That 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 site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the web 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

In case you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll be able to control its name servers effortlessly. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domains at the same time, which will save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a large number of domains you want to forward to another service provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. We also allow you to create private name servers for each and every domain address registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any problems even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domains in the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which can save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the correct ones or not in order for the domain address to be pointed to the account which you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
