The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out 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 in a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every single domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
When you use a shared hosting from our company and you add a new domain inside the account or transfer an existing one from another company, you will be able to control its NS records easily using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain name or even for a group of domain names simultaneously with several mouse clicks. This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that's a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to manage your domain name even if it's the first you have ever registered. It requires merely a click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to direct a domain to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of every company that you want the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our semi-dedicated server accounts are administered via Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with extremely user-friendly interface, which will help you handle your domain names with ease even if you have not used a web hosting account or a domain previously. Changing the NS records for any domain name registered using our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are correct or not as to direct that domain to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and takes as little as several mouse clicks. You'll also be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain addresses as a part of the free DNS control services that we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for any domain which you accommodate inside the semi-dedicated account, so if you provide services to third-parties and host their websites, using this feature is going to give you more credibility as a business.
