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 address, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. In this way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the website content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

The outstanding Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud hosting plans, will enable you to handle the name servers of every single domain address registered through us with only a few mouse clicks, so even when you haven't had a web hosting plan or a domain address 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 permit you to modify the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain names all at once. In addition we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each and every domain registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to forward the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to forward the domain address to their system. In contrast to other providers, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any issues even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domain names within the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you a great deal of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the proper ones or not in order for the domain address to be directed to the account that you have on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
