The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every domain name has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered inside a shared web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain name, but even of several domain names at a time in case that you want to point them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform because the transfer procedure is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you wish to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company website, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain name to the same account also, besides the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many different domain addresses within the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which will save you a great deal of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain uses and if they're the correct ones or not in order for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
