The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address 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 (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every Internet domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered in a hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you merely seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of numerous domain addresses at a time when you would like to point them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer procedure is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still forward to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company website, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain name to the same account as well, not just the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have multiple domains inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a lot of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the correct ones or not as a way for the domain name to be directed to the account that you've got on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to set up private name servers under any domain registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for any other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
