The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must 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 and the website content is required from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each Internet domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a cloud web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to take care of its name servers easily. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domains at the same time, which could save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a lot of domain addresses that you would like to direct to a different provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. In addition we enable you to set up private name servers for every single Internet domain registered using our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
