The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should 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 address and the site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every single domain name has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with only a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domains simultaneously, which could save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a large number of domain names that you'd like to point to another provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We permit you to set up private name servers for each and every domain address registered via our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect 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 example, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to control the NS records of each domain registered within it without difficulty. The Hepsia CP, which is basically an all-in-one tool for you to manage everything related to your web presence, offers a very simple and intuitive interface.

You are also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domains uses right now and if they are the ones needed to direct that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your site, especially if it's a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain that you'd like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
