The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the group of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to 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 Internet protocol address and the website content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a web hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domain addresses at the same time, which could save you time and efforts in case you have a huge number of domains that you'd like to direct to a different provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. In addition we enable you to set up private name servers for every domain name registered with our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for instance, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain that is registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks using the advanced, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as easy to view the current NS records for a particular domain name and to check if they're the ones that are needed for the domain name to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to handle any domain with ease even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can even register private name servers and and use them not only for the domain address under which they are set up, but also for any other domain that you'd like to host in the exact same account. This option is very handy when you have customers of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is free of charge.
