The NS (Name Server) records of a domain 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 inside a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. That way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is required from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every Internet domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain registered within a cloud hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you only seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain address, but even of numerous domain names simultaneously whenever you intend to point them all to the same hosting company. Exactly the same steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform since the transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still direct to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company web site, for example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain to the same account as well, besides the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to control the NS records of any domain registered within it easily. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can manage everything associated with your web presence, comes with a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all your domains is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain name and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of clicks. You will also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses right now and if they are the ones required to point that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com totally free. This will give more credibility to your site, especially when it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain which you want to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
