The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the range of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. That 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 address and the site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every domain address has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Website Hosting

The outstanding Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our website hosting products, will enable you to deal with the name servers of every domain address registered through us with simply a few clicks, so even if you haven't had a hosting plan or a domain address before, you'll not encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and will enable you to change the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain addresses all at once. Additionally we offer you the chance to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every domain registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to point the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you will use the new records to direct the domain address to their system. In contrast to other companies, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to manage the NS records of any domain registered inside it effortlessly. The Hepsia CP, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can handle everything related to your web presence, offers a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find all of your domains isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain address and a web 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 are also going to have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domains uses right now and if they're the ones required to forward that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com 100% free. This will give more credibility to your web site, especially when it's a business one, and you could use these name servers for any other domain name that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
