The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the range of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. That way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (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 using the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every Internet domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered in a shared hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you just seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of several domain addresses at once in case that you would like to point them all to the same hosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform for the reason that transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still direct to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company website, for instance, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain name to the same account as well, besides the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each domain that is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few clicks using the sophisticated, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as easy to view the current NS records for a given domain and to check if they're the ones that are needed for the domain to be directed to your hosting account.

If you would like, you may also register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain address under which they are created, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host inside the very same account. This feature is very beneficial when you have customers of your own and you would like their web sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is 100 % free.
