The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection 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 address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. With this a 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 correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every Internet 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 Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered within a shared hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of many domains at once in case that you want to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. The very same steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer procedure won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, as an example, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain address to the same account as well, not only the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domains within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which can save you a great deal of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our sophisticated cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
