The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the group of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the web site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every Internet domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain address registered in a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you just seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of many domain addresses at the same time in case that you need to forward them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform because the transfer process will not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, for instance, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain address to the same account as well, not only the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to control the NS records of every domain name registered in it effortlessly. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to manage everything related to your web presence, provides a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section in which you will find all of your domains isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain name and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a several clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain addresses uses at the moment and if they're the ones needed to point that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com totally free. This will give more credibility to your website, especially if it is a business one, and you may use these name servers for any other domain that you might want to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
