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 in a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. That way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single Internet domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

The outstanding Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our shared web hosting products, will enable you to control the name servers of every single domain registered through us with simply a few clicks, so even though you may have not had a hosting plan or a domain name before, you simply won't encounter any difficulties. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it'll allow you to change the NS records of any domain or even a number of domains simultaneously. We provide you with the chance to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain address registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you will 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 direct the domain address to their system. Unlike other companies, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with incredibly user-friendly interface, that will enable you to handle your domains with ease even when you have not used a hosting account or a domain address up to now. Changing the NS records for each and every domain address registered through our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are correct or not as to point that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and requires as little as several clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under any of your domain names as a part of the free DNS administration services that we offer you 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 you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their web sites, employing this feature will give you far more credibility as a business.
