The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should 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 site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each domain address has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you register a domain name within a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers easily. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with only a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain names at the same time, which will save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a huge number of domain names that you'd like to point to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. Furthermore we allow you to create private name servers for every domain registered through our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each and every domain address that's registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few clicks using the leading-edge, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as simple to see the current NS records for a particular domain name and to check if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to control any domain easily even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you'd 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 name under which they are set up, but also for any other domain that you'd like to host in the same account. This feature is very useful if you have customers of your own and you want their sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available absolutely free.
