The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, 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 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 required from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be sent to the right mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every Internet domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
The outstanding Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud website hosting packages, will permit you to deal with the name servers of each and every domain name registered through our company with just a couple of clicks, so even though you may haven't had a hosting plan or a domain address before, you simply won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it will allow you to change the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain addresses together. In addition we provide you with the ability to create child name servers and for each domain name registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to point the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to point the domain name to their system. Different from other companies, we don't charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a new domain name in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you'll 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 a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domains inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which will save you lots of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain address uses and if they're the proper ones or not in order for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have on our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain name 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.
