The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out 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 within a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. This way 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 correct location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the emails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every Internet domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered in a cloud hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you merely moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of numerous domains at a time whenever you intend to forward them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform given that the transfer process is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, as an example, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account also, not only the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain name in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any issues even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domain addresses inside the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the proper ones or not as a way for the domain name to be forwarded to the account which you have on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to create private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for every other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
