The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address 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 IP and the website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you use a cloud hosting service from our us and you include a new domain name in the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you are going to be able to manage its NS records easily via the Hepsia website hosting CP, offered with all shared accounts. You are able to 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 clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to manage your domain name even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It takes only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to direct a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each and every provider that you would like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain name within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will 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 several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have a number of domains inside the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the correct ones or not for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have got on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
