The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out 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 within an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain address 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 Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the emails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each Internet domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
The innovative Hepsia CP, included with with our shared web hosting packages, will permit you to handle the name servers of every single domain address registered through our company with just a few clicks, so even if you have never had a web hosting plan or a domain name before, you'll not encounter any difficulties. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and will enable you to edit the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domains simultaneously. In addition we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain name registered in 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 point the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you will use the new records to point the domain name to their system. Unlike other providers, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for every single domain name that is registered through us could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the sophisticated, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to see the current NS records for a particular domain address and to determine if they're the ones that are required for the domain name to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to enable you to manage any domain address easily even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you want, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain under which they are set up, but also for any other domain name that you would like to host in the very same account. This option is very useful when you have clients of your own and you want their sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is totally free.
