The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain 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 address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every domain address has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered within a shared website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform will take you just moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of multiple domain names at the same time in case that you intend to direct them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer process is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, 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 directing any other domain to the same account as well, besides the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
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 problems even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many different domain addresses inside the account, you are going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you lots of time and clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the right ones or not as a way for the domain name to be directed to the account that you have got on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even permit you to create private name servers under any domain address registered in the account and use them not only for that domain, but also for any other one that you intend to direct to our cloud platform.
