The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. This way a web 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 required from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the emails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud hosting plans, allows you to take care of the name servers of any domain name registered through us with simply a couple of mouse clicks, so even when you have not had a website hosting plan or a domain name before, you will not encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it'll enable you to edit the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain addresses all at once. Additionally we offer you the ability to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for any domain registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you'll 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 will use the new records to forward the domain address to their system. Different from other providers, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled using Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with highly user-friendly interface, which will permit you to handle your domains effortlessly even if you have not used a web hosting account or a domain before. Changing the NS records for each domain address registered with our company, viewing the existing ones and whether they are right or not as to forward that domain address to our cloud hosting platform is also quite easy and takes just several clicks. You're also going to be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain addresses as a part of the free DNS administration services which we offer you with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain name that you accommodate in the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their sites, using this feature is going to give you more credibility as a business.
