The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. In this way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the website content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. 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 Web Hosting
When you use a Linux web hosting from our us and you add a new domain name in the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you're going to be able to manage its NS records easily using the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for several domain addresses simultaneously 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 easy to handle your domain name even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It takes merely a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of every provider that you'd like the new NS records to point to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with very user-friendly interface, which will enable you to manage your domain names easily even when you have not used a hosting account or a domain previously. Changing the NS records for each domain address registered using our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are correct or not as to forward that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and requires as little as several clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under every one of your domains as a part of the free DNS management services that we offer with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for any domain name that you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their websites, using this feature will give you more credibility as a business.
