The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. This way a 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 site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every domain address has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
In the event you register a domain name in a shared website hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domains simultaneously, which will save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a lot of domain addresses that you'd like to forward to a different service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. In addition we permit you to create private name servers for every single domain name registered using our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have multiple domains inside the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the correct ones or not for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
