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 selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your laptop or computer 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 web site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single domain address has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain name registered inside a shared hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you merely seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain name, but even of many domain addresses at once in case that you intend to forward them all to the same hosting company. The very same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer procedure will not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company website, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain name to the same account too, not only the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for each and every domain that's registered through us may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the sophisticated, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to view the current NS records for a given domain address and to verify 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 handle any domain address with ease even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they are created, but also for any other domain that you might want to host in the very same account. This option is very beneficial when you have customers of your own and you wish their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available absolutely free.
