The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every domain address has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain registered inside a cloud web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of many domains simultaneously if you would like to forward them all to the same webhosting provider. Identical steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company web site, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain to the same account also, besides the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any problems even if you have never had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many different domain names inside the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you lots of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the proper ones or not in order for the domain to be pointed to the account which you have on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to create private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for every other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
