The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. That 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 web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered within a cloud hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of numerous domain addresses at once when you intend to forward them all to the same hosting company. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform because the transfer procedure is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you want to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, as an example, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account as well, besides the one they are created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for any domain name that's registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the advanced, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to see the current NS records for a particular domain and to determine if they are the ones that are required for the domain address to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to control any domain name easily even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you may even register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain under which they're created, but also for any other domain that you might want to host inside the exact same account. This option is very handy when you have customers of your own and you want their websites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is available totally free.
