The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. In this way 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 takes care of the emails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

If you register a domain name within a cloud hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a couple of 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 a lot of time and efforts when you have a huge number of domain addresses that you'd like to direct to a different provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. We allow you to create private name servers for each and every domain name registered via our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for example, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for any domain name that is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the innovative, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as effortless to view the current NS records for a specific domain and to check if they are the ones that are necessary for the domain address to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to manage any domain name effortlessly even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you want, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they are created, but also for any other domain address that you'd like to host in the same account. This feature is very beneficial if you have clients of your own and you want their sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is totally free.
