The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out 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 in a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every domain address has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
In case you register a domain name within a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll be able to manage its name servers with ease. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even numerous domain names at a time, which can save you time and efforts if you have a lot of domain addresses that you would like to redirect to an alternative provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We permit you to create private name servers for any Internet domain registered with our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time 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 Hosting
If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to handle the NS records of any domain address registered inside it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool for you to deal with everything relevant to your web presence, comes with a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find all your domain addresses is not an exception, so even if you have not had a domain and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a few clicks. You're also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain names uses right now and if they are the ones required to direct that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ free of charge. This will give more credibility to your web site, especially if it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain address that you'd like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
