The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each and every domain address has a minimum of 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 inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you will be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with only a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names at once, which will save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain names that you'd like to direct to a different service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. In addition we allow you to create private name servers for every single domain name registered using our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything more 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 when you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have several domains inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which can save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be pointed to the account that you have got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to create private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for any other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
