The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
In case you register a domain name inside a shared web hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to handle its name servers easily. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domains simultaneously, which will save you time and efforts when you have a huge number of domains that you would like to point to a different provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. In addition we allow you to set up private name servers for each domain name registered via our company and in contrast to many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for every domain address that is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the leading-edge, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as easy to view the current NS records for a given domain name and to check if they are the ones that are necessary for the domain name to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to manage any domain address with ease even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you can even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain name under which they're set up, but also for any other domain address that you'd like to host inside the exact same account. This option is very useful if you have clients of your own and you would like their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available free of charge.
