The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. This way a web 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 site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single Internet domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain name registered in a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of multiple domains at once when you intend to point them all to the same hosting company. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform as the transfer procedure will not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company site, for instance, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain to the same account too, not only the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have several domains within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you lots of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the correct ones or not as a way for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you have on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
