The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. 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 website content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every domain name has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered within a cloud web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of many domain addresses simultaneously in case that you need to point them all to the same webhosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you want to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company site, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain to the same account as well, not only the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any troubles 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 administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have many different domains inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which can save you a great deal of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain name uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be directed to the account that you have got on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered in the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
