The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. This 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 required from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
The outstanding Hepsia CP, included with with our cloud hosting
packages, allows you to take care of the name servers of any domain name registered through our company with only a few clicks, so even if you have not had a website hosting plan or a domain before, you will not encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and it will allow you to change the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain names simultaneously. We offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain address registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you'll use the child NS to direct the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to forward the domain name to their system. In contrast to other companies, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for each domain name that's registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few clicks using the leading-edge, although easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server
plans. It's just as easy to view the current NS records for a given domain name and to check if they're the ones that are needed for the domain address to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to manage any domain with ease even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you may even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain under which they are created, but also for any other domain address that you might want to host within the exact same account. This feature is very handy if you have customers of your own and you want their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available 100 % free.
