The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should 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 IP 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 (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
In case you register a domain name within a shared hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain names at the same time, which will save you a lot of time and efforts if you have a large number of domains that you would like to redirect to another service provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We allow you to set up private name servers for every single domain address registered with our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're going to be able to handle the NS records of any domain address registered in it without difficulty. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool where you can manage everything relevant to your web presence, provides a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find all of your domain addresses is not 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 will not take you more than a few clicks. You will also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain names uses at the moment and if they're the ones needed to point that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your site, particularly when it's a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain that you would like to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
