The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. That way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain address has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

The outstanding Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared website hosting plans, allows you to deal with the name servers of each domain name registered through us with only a couple of clicks, so even if you have never had a web hosting plan or a domain before, you'll not encounter any issues. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and will allow you to modify the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domains all at once. We also give you the ability to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you are going to 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'll use the new records to point the domain to their system. Different from other providers, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to handle the NS records of every domain address registered inside it easily. The Hepsia CP, which is essentially an all-in-one tool for you to control everything associated with your web presence, offers a very simple and intuitive interface. The section in which you will find all of your domains isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a several clicks. You'll also be able to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domains uses right now and if they are the ones required to direct that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an extra feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com 100% free. This will give more credibility to your website, particularly when it's a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain that you would like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
