The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within 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 name must be retrieved. That 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 address and the website content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single Internet domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

When you use a cloud hosting from our us and you include a new domain address in the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you'll be able to control its NS records easily using the Hepsia website hosting CP, offered with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a group of domain addresses at once with several clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to handle your domain address even if it is the first you have ever registered. It requires only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to forward a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for any of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of any provider that you would like the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for every single domain that is registered through us may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the sophisticated, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to see the current NS records for a particular domain and to check if they are the ones that are required for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to manage any domain effortlessly even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain under which they are created, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host within the same account. This feature is very useful if you have clients of your own and you want their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available absolutely free.
