The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the web site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every domain name has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain registered within a cloud web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform will take you merely seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of many domains simultaneously if you would like to direct them all to the same webhosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer process doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company site, as an example, it's going to 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 name to the same account too, not just the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to handle the NS records of every domain name registered within it effortlessly. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can control everything related to your web presence, comes with a very simple and intuitive interface. The section in which you will find all your domains is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain address and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a few clicks. You will also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain addresses uses currently and if they are the ones required to point that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your web site, especially when it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain which you want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
