The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within 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 address ought to be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the emails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain address has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared web hosting products, will allow you to handle the name servers of every domain address registered through us with just a couple of clicks, so even when you have never had a web hosting plan or a domain address before, you simply won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and it'll permit you to modify the NS records of any domain or even a number of domains simultaneously. Additionally we provide you with the ability to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you will use the child NS to point the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to redirect the domain to their system. Unlike other providers, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain in 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 problems even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domains within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you lots of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not in order for the domain to be pointed to the account that you've got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to create private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
