The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. In this way 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 site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain address has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared hosting
products, will enable you to deal with the name servers of every domain address registered through us with only a few mouse clicks, so even when you have not had a website hosting plan or a domain before, you will not encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it'll allow you to change the NS records of any domain name or even a number of domain addresses together. We also provide you with the ability to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you'll use the child NS to direct the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to point the domain name to their system. Different from other companies, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for every domain name that is registered through our company may be changed with no more than a few clicks via the innovative, although easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server
plans. It is just as effortless to see the current NS records for a specific domain name and to check if they are the ones that are needed for the domain address to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to control any domain effortlessly even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you may also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain address under which they're set up, but also for any other domain name that you might want to host in the very same account. This option is very beneficial when you have clients of your own and you would like their sites to use your own name servers rather than our default ones. The service is absolutely free.
