The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. With this 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 web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
If you register a domain name in a shared web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to manage its name servers easily. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain addresses at a time, which will save you considerable time and efforts if you have a lot of domains you want to direct to another service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. In addition we enable you to create private name servers for every domain registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with highly user-friendly interface, which will allow you to manage your domain names easily even when you have never used a hosting account or a domain address before. Changing the NS records for each domain name registered through our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are correct or not as to direct that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and takes only several mouse clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under any of your domains as a part of the free DNS management services which we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for each and every domain address which you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their web sites, using this feature will give you a lot more credibility as a business.
