The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. That 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 required from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the emails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain address has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Website Hosting
In the event you register a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to control its name servers with ease. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with only a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain addresses at a time, which will save you considerable time and efforts when you have a huge number of domain addresses that you'd like to redirect to a different provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. Furthermore we permit you to create private name servers for each Internet domain registered via 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 direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for instance, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for every single domain address which is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few clicks via the innovative, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to see the current NS records for a particular domain name and to verify if they are the ones that are needed for the domain to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to handle any domain with ease even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain under which they're created, but also for any other domain address that you would like to host in the very same account. This feature is very handy when you have customers of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
