The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. This way 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 correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every domain address has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

When you use a cloud hosting from our company and you add a new domain name in the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you're going to be able to handle its NS records easily via the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for a group of domain names at a time with several clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it easy to control your domain even if it's the first one you've ever registered. It takes merely a click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for any of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of every provider that you want the new NS records to direct to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for every domain that is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few clicks through the sophisticated, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as simple to see the current NS records for a specific domain and to verify if they are the ones that are needed for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to handle any domain name effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you want, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain address under which they're created, but also for any other domain address that you might want to host within the very same account. This option is very handy if you have clients of your own and you wish their sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available absolutely free.
