The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. That way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every domain address has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

When you use a shared web hosting from our us and you register a new domain name within the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you'll be able to control its NS records easily via the Hepsia website hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for a group of domain addresses at the same time with several mouse clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to manage your domain name even if it is the first you have ever registered. It requires simply a click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a few mouse clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of every provider that you'd like the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each and every domain that is registered through us can be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the advanced, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to see the current NS records for a particular domain and to verify if they are the ones that are needed for the domain address to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to handle any domain effortlessly even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain address under which they're created, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host in the exact same account. This feature is very beneficial when you have clients of your own and you would like their websites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
