The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain 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 Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the emails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
In the event you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you'll be able to control its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domains at once, which could save you time and efforts if you have a huge number of domain names that you'd like to redirect to a different service provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Furthermore we permit you to set up private name servers for every single domain name registered through our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you have never had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many different domains within the account, you will be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you lots of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for any other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
