The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside an Internet 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 name should be retrieved. In 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 proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Web Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, included with with our web hosting packages, will permit you to handle the name servers of each domain registered through us with simply a couple of clicks, so even if you have never had a hosting plan or a domain address before, you won't encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it'll allow you to edit the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain names all at once. Additionally we provide you with the chance to create child name servers and for every single domain address registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair 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 provider if you'll use the new records to direct the domain address to their system. Unlike other companies, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for each domain name that is registered through our company can be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks via the advanced, though easy-to-use Hepsia CP included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as simple to see the current NS records for a specific domain name and to verify if they are the ones that are needed 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 permit you to handle any domain address with ease even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you may even register private name servers and and use them not just for the domain name under which they're created, but also for any other domain name that you'd like to host inside the exact same account. This option is very handy if you have clients of your own and you would like their web sites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available totally free.
