The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers worldwide 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 is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
In case you register a domain name inside a cloud web hosting account from our company, you will be able to manage its name servers without difficulty. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website 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 numerous domains at a time, which can save you considerable time and efforts if you have a huge number of domain names you want to forward to another service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We also allow you to set up private name servers for each and every Internet domain registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with incredibly user-friendly interface, that will enable you to control your domains with ease even when you have never used a web hosting account or a domain address in the past. Changing the NS records for each domain registered through our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are right or not as to direct that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and takes just several mouse clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under every one of your domain names as part of the free DNS administration services that we offer with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for each and every domain name you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their sites, using this feature will give you far more credibility as a business.
