The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the group of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the emails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each domain address has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered in a cloud hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of several domain names at a time when you want to forward them all to the same hosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform given that the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you'd like to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain to the same account too, not only the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you register a new domain address inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any problems even if you have never had a domain name of your own before. The process takes a couple of clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have multiple domain addresses inside the account, you're going to be able to update all of them at the same time, which could save you lots of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the correct ones or not in order for the domain address to be pointed to the account that you have on our advanced cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also permit you to set up private name servers under any domain registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain, but also for any other one that you wish to point to our cloud platform.
