The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should 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 website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the emails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain registered within a shared website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you just seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of multiple domains at the same time in case that you would like to forward them all to the same webhosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform given that the transfer procedure is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company website, for instance, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain to the same account as well, not just the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have several domain addresses inside the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you quite a lot of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the right ones or not for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for any other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
