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 address, so when you open a URL in an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. That way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the web site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each domain address has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered inside a cloud web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you only moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain address, but even of numerous domain names at once whenever 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 since the transfer procedure is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company site, for instance, it's going to 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 too, not just the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you haven't had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, provided with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have a number of domains inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a great deal of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the proper ones or not as a way for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you've got on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
