The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. That way a 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 right location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud web hosting products, will permit you to take care of the name servers of each and every domain address registered through us with only a few clicks, so even if you have not had a hosting plan or a domain before, you won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it will permit you to edit the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domain names together. Additionally we offer you the chance to create child name servers and for each and every domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to point the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to redirect the domain name to their system. In contrast to other providers, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any issues even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many domain addresses in the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you lots of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the correct ones or not for the domain address to be directed to the account that you've got on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
