The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the group of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. In this way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the emails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every domain address has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain address registered inside a shared hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you merely moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of many domains at once whenever you want to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform since the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company website, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain to the same account too, not only the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain address in 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 haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domain names inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you lots of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be directed to the account which you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will allow you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
