The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. This 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 required from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain address has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Web Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain registered within a web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you merely seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of numerous domain names at once whenever you would like to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform because the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company website, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain address to the same account also, besides the one they are created for.

You're also going to be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domains as a part of the free DNS administration services that we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for each and every domain name that you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their web sites, using this feature is going to give you far more credibility as a business.
