The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to 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 IP and the website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every single Internet domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain name registered in a cloud web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you only seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of many domains simultaneously in case that you intend to point them all to the same hosting provider. The exact same steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform given that the transfer process doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you want to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account also, besides the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with extremely user-friendly interface, that will allow you to handle your domain names without difficulty even if you have never used a hosting account or a domain name previously.

You are also going to be able to register child name servers under any of your domain names as a part of the free DNS control services that we offer you with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for any domain address you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their web sites, employing this feature will give you more credibility as a business.
