The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the emails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single Internet domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
If you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even several domain names at once, which could save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a large number of domains you want to direct to another service provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. We enable you to create private name servers for each domain name registered via our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you'll be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many different domain addresses within the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they are the correct ones or not as a way for the domain address to be forwarded to the account that you have got on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to create private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for any other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
