The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the group of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to 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 and the site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that 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 will be able to control its name servers with ease. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain names simultaneously, which could save you considerable time and efforts if you have a lot of domain addresses you want to point to another provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We allow you to create private name servers for each domain address registered through our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to control the NS records of any domain name registered within it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can deal with everything related to your web presence, offers a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find your domain names isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain address and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a few mouse clicks. You will also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain addresses uses right now and if they are the ones required to direct that domain name 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 100% free. This will give more credibility to your site, especially when it's a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain address that you'd like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
