The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. That way 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 address and the site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain name has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Website Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain name registered in a website hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of numerous domain addresses simultaneously in case that you want to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer process won't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, for instance, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account also, not just the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain name within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're 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 couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many different domain names in the account, you're going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the right ones or not in order for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you have on our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to create private name servers under any domain address registered within the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for any other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
