The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the group of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. In this 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 required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud hosting plans, will permit you to manage the name servers of any domain registered through our company with just a few clicks, so even when you have not had a web hosting plan or a domain name before, you'll not encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and it'll enable you to modify the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domains simultaneously. We also provide you with the chance to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for any domain registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to direct the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to direct the domain name to their system. Different from other companies, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain name within 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 required without any difficulties even if you have not had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many domains within the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which will save you a great deal of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they're the correct ones or not in order for the domain address to be pointed to the account which you have on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
