The NS (Name Server) records of a domain 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 in an Internet browser, your personal 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. This way a web 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 web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

If you register a domain name within a shared web hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain addresses at once, which could save you considerable time and efforts when you have a lot of domain addresses that you would like to direct to an alternative service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We allow you to set up private name servers for every single domain name registered through our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for instance, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domain names within the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the proper ones or not as a way for the domain 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 address registered in the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
