The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to 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 Internet protocol address and the site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every domain address has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Website Hosting
If you use a Linux website hosting service from our us and you add a new domain address inside the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you will be able to manage its NS records with ease through the Hepsia website hosting CP, provided with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for a number of domains at the same time with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to control your domain name even if it's the first one you have ever registered. It takes merely a mouse click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to forward a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of each company that you want the new NS records to point to.
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 company, 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 control tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have several domain names within the account, you'll be able to update all of them at the same time, which will save you a lot of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they are the right ones or not as a way for the domain to be directed to the account that you've got on our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to set up private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain address, but also for every other one that you intend to point to our cloud platform.
