The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each domain address has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Website Hosting

When you use a website hosting plan from our us and you include a new domain address within the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you'll be able to control its NS records effortlessly using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for a number of domain addresses at a time with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it simple to manage your domain even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It requires merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you will 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 each provider that you would like the new NS records to forward to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to manage the NS records of any domain registered within it without difficulty. The Hepsia CP, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can handle everything associated with your web presence, comes with a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section in which you will find all your domain addresses is not an exception, so even if you have not had a domain and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You are also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain names uses presently and if they are the ones required to point that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com totally free. This will give more credibility to your site, especially when it is a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain which you want to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
