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 range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. In this way a 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 site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every domain address has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Hosting
In case you register a domain name in a hosting account from our company, you will be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain names at once, which will save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a lot of domain names that you'd like to direct to an alternative service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Furthermore we permit you to set up private name servers for every single domain registered through our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many domains in the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a lot of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the correct ones or not as a way for the domain address to be forwarded to the account that you have on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for every other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
