The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. With this 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 web site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the emails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each domain name has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
In the event you register a domain name in a cloud web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain names simultaneously, which could save you time and efforts if you have a large number of domain names that you would like to forward to a different provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. We enable you to create private name servers for every single domain name registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain name 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 domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have several domain addresses inside the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at once, which could save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they are the correct ones or not in order for the domain name to be forwarded to the account which you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to create private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
