The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers globally 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 name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every domain name has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

If you register a domain name in a shared hosting account from our company, you will be able to manage its name servers without difficulty. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with only a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domains simultaneously, which could save you considerable time and efforts if you have a lot of domain addresses that you'd like to direct to an alternative service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. We permit you to set up private name servers for each and every domain address registered with our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for example, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domain names in the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which will save you a lot of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the correct ones or not for the domain to be directed to the account that you have got on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for every other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
