The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal 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 within a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the e-mails 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 with the help of the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every single domain address has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
The outstanding Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud website hosting plans, allows you to control the name servers of every domain address registered through our company with simply a few mouse clicks, so even when you have never had a web hosting plan or a domain address before, you will not encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it will enable you to edit the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain names together. In addition we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers and for each domain name registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to direct the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to redirect the domain name to their system. Different from other companies, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to handle the NS records of every domain registered within it easily. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything related to your web presence, offers a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all your domain names is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain address and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a few mouse clicks. You will also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain names uses at the moment and if they're the ones required to direct that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/ free of charge. This will give more credibility to your site, especially when it is a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain address that you might want to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
