The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. That way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
The outstanding Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our shared hosting plans, will permit you to manage the name servers of every single domain name registered through us with only a couple of clicks, so even when you have not had a hosting plan or a domain before, you simply won't encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it will enable you to edit the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domains together. In addition we provide you with the ability to create child name servers and for every single domain name registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you're going to use the child NS to point the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to forward the domain to their system. In contrast to other providers, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
The name servers for any domain address that's registered through us may be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the sophisticated, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as easy to view the current NS records for a given domain name and to determine if they're the ones that are required for the domain name to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to control any domain address effortlessly even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you want, you may even register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain name under which they are set up, but also for any other domain that you'd like to host within the very same account. This option is very useful if you have clients of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is totally free.
