The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the emails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Hosting
If you register a domain name within a hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to control its name servers easily. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domains simultaneously, which will save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names you want to redirect to an alternative provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. We also permit you to set up private name servers for any domain registered through our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each 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 Hosting
When you register a new domain address in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domains inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the right ones or not in order for the domain address to be directed to the account that you have on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for every other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
