The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the group of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. That 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 and the web site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single 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 use a cloud hosting from our us and you include a new domain name in the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you are going to be able to manage its NS records easily through the Hepsia web hosting CP, which comes with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for a group of domain addresses at the same time with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to control your domain address even if it's the first you have ever registered. It requires simply a click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to forward a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a few mouse clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for each of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each company that you would like the new NS records to forward to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are managed using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with very user-friendly interface, that will enable you to manage your domain addresses without difficulty even if you haven't used a hosting account or a domain name before. Changing the NS records for each and every domain registered through our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are accurate or not as to point that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also quite simple and requires just a couple of clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain names as part of the free DNS control services which we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for each and every domain name that you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their sites, employing this feature will give you much more credibility as a business.
