The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the range of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. 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 site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Website Hosting
The avant-garde Hepsia CP, included with with our website hosting packages, allows you to take care of the name servers of each domain address registered through us with simply a couple of mouse clicks, so even though you may have never had a website hosting plan or a domain 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 enable you to edit the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain names together. Additionally we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers and for any domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you're going to use the child NS to point the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to redirect the domain to their system. In contrast to other providers, we don't charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domain names inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which can save you a great deal of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the proper ones or not as a way for the domain name to be directed to the account which you have on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to set up private name servers under any domain registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
