The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address 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 is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each Internet domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain addresses simultaneously, which can save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain names you want to redirect to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We allow you to create private name servers for each domain name registered through our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, 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 any domain name that is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the leading-edge, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as easy to see the current NS records for a specific domain and to determine if they are the ones that are necessary for the domain name to be directed to your hosting account.

If you want, you may even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they are created, but also for any other domain name that you would like to host within the exact same account. This feature is very beneficial when you have customers of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is totally free.
