The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a web 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 should be retrieved. In this way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every domain address has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our shared website hosting plans, will allow you to handle the name servers of each domain address registered through our company with only a few clicks, so even though you may have not had a website hosting plan or a domain name before, you won't encounter any difficulties. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it'll enable you to change the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domains all at once. We provide you with the chance to set up child name servers and for every single domain address registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you're going to use the child NS to direct the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to direct the domain to their system. Unlike other companies, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a new domain name within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have multiple domain names inside the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you lots of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the correct ones or not as a way for the domain to be pointed to the account that you have on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain registered in the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for any other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
