The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In case you register a domain name inside a cloud hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to handle its name servers easily. This is accomplished through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a few clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain addresses simultaneously, which will save you considerable time and efforts if you have a large number of domains you want to point to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We also allow you to create private name servers for every single domain name registered through our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything more 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 every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to manage the NS records of each domain registered within it without difficulty.

You're also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses presently and if they are the ones required to point that domain to the semi-dedicated account.

This will give more credibility to your web site, especially when it's a business one, and you could use these name servers for any other domain name that you might want to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
