The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. In this way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every Internet domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

If you register a domain name inside a shared website hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers easily. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain addresses at once, which can save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a huge number of domains you want to forward to another service provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We allow you to set up private name servers for each Internet domain registered using our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each and every domain name which is registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the advanced, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to see the current NS records for a specific domain address and to determine if they're the ones that are necessary for the domain to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to manage any domain easily even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you may also register private name servers and and use them not only for the domain under which they're set up, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host within the very same account. This option is very handy if you have customers of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available 100 % free.
