The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to 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 address and the site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Web Hosting
Controlling the NS records for any domain address registered in a web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you just moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain, but even of multiple domain addresses at once if you need to point them all to the same webhosting provider. The exact same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform as the transfer process doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still direct to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain to the same account also, besides the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for every domain that is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks from the innovative, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia CP that comes with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as effortless to see the current NS records for a given domain and to check if they're the ones that are required for the domain to be pointed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to control any domain address easily even if you haven't dealt with such matters before. If you want, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain address under which they're set up, but also for any other domain address that you might want to host in the same account. This option is very beneficial when you have clients of your own and you want their sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is totally free.
