The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. That way a web 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 site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each domain address has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Hosting
In the event you register a domain name inside a hosting
account from our company, you're going to be able to control its name servers with ease. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names at a time, which will save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a huge number of domains you want to redirect to an alternative service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. Additionally we allow you to set up private name servers for each and every domain name registered through our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you go for a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you're going to be able to handle the NS records of each domain registered inside it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can manage everything relevant to your web presence, comes with a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all your domains is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of clicks. You are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain names uses presently and if they are the ones required to point that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly when it's a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain address that you would like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
