The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your PC 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. With this a web 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 site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every single Internet domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Website Hosting

In case you register a domain name inside a website hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domains at once, which can save you time and efforts if you have a huge number of domain names that you'd like to point to another provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. Furthermore we permit you to set up private name servers for each and every Internet domain registered using our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for instance, 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 required without any issues even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many domains inside the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the proper ones or not in order for the domain address to be forwarded to the account which you have on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
