The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. In 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 and the web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain name has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered inside a shared hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you merely seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of numerous domains simultaneously in case that you need to direct them all to the same hosting company. Identical steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform because the transfer process does not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you want to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, for example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account too, besides the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain name within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many different domains inside the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the proper ones or not in order for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
