The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. This way a 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 web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the e-mails for the domain (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, enabling you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each domain address has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

The outstanding Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our cloud hosting packages, allows you to take care of the name servers of each domain address registered through us with simply a couple of mouse clicks, so even when you have not had a web hosting plan or a domain name before, you simply won't encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it will enable you to edit the NS records of any domain or even a number of domains together. We give you the opportunity to create child name servers and for each and every domain registered in 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 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 name to their system. In contrast to other providers, we don't 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 are going to be able to control the NS records of each domain address registered in it with ease. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can deal with everything related to your web presence, offers a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find your domains isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a couple of clicks. You will also be able to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domain names uses right now and if they are the ones required to direct that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ free of charge. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly if it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for any other domain that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
