The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. With this a 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 proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each domain address has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
If you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a few mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain names at once, which will save you time and efforts when you have a lot of domain names that you'd like to redirect to a different provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We enable you to create private name servers for every Internet domain registered using our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're going to be able to manage the NS records of each domain name registered inside it without difficulty. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything relevant to your web presence, offers a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find all your domain names isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain address and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a several clicks. You are also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain addresses uses currently and if they're the ones needed to direct that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly if it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain that you would like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
