The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside 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 address ought to be retrieved. That 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 right location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud website hosting plans, will permit you to handle the name servers of every single domain registered through our company with just a few clicks, so even when you have never had a website hosting plan or a domain address before, you simply won't encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it will enable you to modify the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain addresses all at once. We provide you with the ability to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every domain name registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - 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 provider if you will use the new records to redirect the domain address to their system. Different from other companies, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domains inside the account, you'll be able to update all of them at once, which will save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not in order for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you've got on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you would like to direct to our cloud platform.
