The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection 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 address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. With this 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 site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every domain name has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

If you register a domain name within a cloud website hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers easily. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain addresses at the same time, which could save you considerable time and efforts if you have a lot of domain addresses that you would like to point to an alternative provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. We also permit you to create private name servers for any Internet domain registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to control the NS records of every domain address registered in it effortlessly. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool where you can control everything relevant to your web presence, comes with a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find all of your domains isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain address and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a few mouse clicks. You're also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domains uses at the moment and if they are the ones needed to point that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly if it's a business one, and you may use these name servers for any other domain address which you want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
