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 selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a 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 address should be retrieved. That way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the emails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain name registered in a cloud hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of many domain addresses at a time in case that you want to direct them all to the same hosting company. The very same steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer procedure will not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company website, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account as well, besides the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with very user-friendly interface, which will allow you to manage your domain names without difficulty even when you have never used a hosting account or a domain name previously. Changing the NS records for each domain address registered with our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are right or not as to direct that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also very simple and requires only several mouse clicks. You are also going to be able to register child name servers under any of your domain names as a part of the free DNS administration services which we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain which you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their sites, employing this feature will give you more credibility as a business.
