The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Hosting

If you register a domain name in a hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain names simultaneously, which can save you considerable time and efforts if you have a lot of domains that you'd like to direct to an alternative provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. We permit you to create private name servers for every Internet domain registered via our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to control the NS records of every domain address registered inside it effortlessly.

The section where you will find your domains is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You'll also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domain names uses right now and if they are the ones needed to direct that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com 100% free. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly when it is a business one, and you could use these name servers for any other domain address which you want to host inside the semi-dedicated account as well.
