The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out 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 inside a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the web site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the emails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each Internet domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
When you use a Linux shared website hosting package from our company and you add a new domain in the account or transfer an existing one from a different provider, you are going to be able to manage its NS records with ease via the Hepsia web 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 address or even for several domain addresses simultaneously with several mouse clicks. This is done using 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 you have ever registered. It requires simply a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of mouse clicks more you will 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 provider that you would like the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with very user-friendly interface, that will help you handle your domain addresses with ease even if you have never used a web hosting account or a domain name up to now. Changing the NS records for each domain 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 takes only a couple of clicks. You are also going to be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domains as part of the free DNS administration services 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 address which you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their web sites, using this feature will give you much more credibility as a business.
