The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your personal 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. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain address registered inside a cloud hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you merely seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain name, but even of many domains simultaneously whenever you would like to forward them all to the same hosting provider. The very same steps will also enable you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform because the transfer procedure isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for a 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 website, for instance, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain name to the same account also, besides the one they're created for.
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're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any troubles even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a few mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have several domains in the account, you will be able to update all of them simultaneously, which will save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be forwarded to the account that you've got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to create private name servers under any domain name registered within the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for every other one that you want to direct to our cloud platform.
