The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your PC 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 address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the emails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

The innovative Hepsia CP, which comes with our shared website hosting packages, will allow you to deal with the name servers of every single domain registered through our company with only a couple of clicks, so even though you may have not had a hosting plan or a domain name before, you'll not encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and it will enable you to change the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain addresses simultaneously. Additionally we provide you with the chance to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every domain registered in 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 address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to direct the domain name to their system. Unlike other providers, we don't charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain address in 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 difficulties even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many domain names in the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which will save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the right ones or not for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
