The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the range of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a web 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 address should be retrieved. That 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 web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

If you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you'll 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 only a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain names at the same time, which can save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a large number of domains you want to direct to an alternative provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We enable you to set up private name servers for every single domain name registered with our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain 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 added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with incredibly user-friendly interface, which will allow you to handle your domain names with ease even when you have not used a hosting account or a domain address before. Changing the NS records for any domain registered through our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are right or not as to forward that domain name to our cloud hosting platform is also quite simple and requires just a few clicks. You will also be able to register child name servers under every one of your domains as part of the free DNS management 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 name which you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their sites, employing this feature is going to give you more credibility as a business.
