The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the group of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is done 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 Internet domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Hosting

In case you register a domain name within a hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain names simultaneously, which could save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a lot of domains you want to point to another service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. Additionally we enable you to create private name servers for every domain address registered using our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for instance, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

The name servers for any domain which is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few clicks using the innovative, although easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It is just as simple to see the current NS records for a given domain name and to check if they are the ones that are required for the domain to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to handle any domain name effortlessly even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you would like, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not only for the domain address under which they are set up, but also for any other domain that you might want to host within the very same account. This option is very useful when you have customers of your own and you wish their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
