The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. With this 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 site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain address registered in a hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you just moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of many domains at a time whenever you would like to forward them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform for the reason that transfer procedure is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domains will still point to the old host. If you'd like to set up private name servers for a domain address registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company website, for instance, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain address to the same account too, not just the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you register a new domain name inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you are going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you haven't had a domain of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, included with our semi-dedicated solutions. If you have many different domains inside the account, you will be able to update all of them at once, which will save you lots of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the correct ones or not in order for the domain name to be pointed to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will enable you to set up private name servers under any domain address registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you want to point to our cloud platform.
