The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a browser, your personal computer 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. That way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the web site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each domain address has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, offered with with our cloud website hosting products, will enable you to take care of the name servers of every domain address registered through our company with simply a few clicks, so even though you may have not had a web hosting plan or a domain name before, you simply won't encounter any difficulties. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it will allow you to change the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domains together. In addition we give you the opportunity to create child name servers and for every single domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you're going to use the child NS to direct the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you will use the new records to forward the domain name to their system. Unlike other companies, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many different domain addresses within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which could save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the correct ones or not as a way for the domain address to be forwarded to the account which you have on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
