The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. That way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every single domain name has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

If you register a domain name inside a cloud web hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to control its name servers with ease. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain addresses simultaneously, which can save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a huge number of domain addresses you want to direct to an alternative service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. Furthermore we enable you to set up private name servers for every Internet domain registered via our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with extremely user-friendly interface, that will help you control your domain addresses effortlessly even when you have never used a web hosting account or a domain name previously. Changing the NS records for each domain address registered through our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are accurate or not as to direct that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also quite easy and requires as little as a couple of clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under any of your domain names as part of the free DNS control services which we offer with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for any domain address that you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their websites, employing this feature is going to give you more credibility as a business.
