The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address 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 Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every domain name has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

If you use a cloud web hosting from our company and you add a new domain address within the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you will be able to handle its NS records effortlessly via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for many domains at the same time with several clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it easy to handle your domain address even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It takes just a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for each of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of any company that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for every single domain address that's registered through us may be changed with no more than a few clicks using the innovative, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to see the current NS records for a specific domain and to check if they're the ones that are needed for the domain to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to control any domain with ease even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain name under which they are created, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host inside the very same account. This feature is very beneficial when you have clients of your own and you want their websites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is free of charge.
