The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. With this a 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 web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

In addition we give you the ability to set up child name servers and for any domain address registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair 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 provider if you will use the new records to point the domain address to their system. Unlike other companies, we don't charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you register a new domain address within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you're going to be able to update its NS records as needed without any difficulties even if you have not had a domain address of your own before. The process takes a couple of mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly control tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domain names within the account, you'll be able to update all of them at once, which can save you quite a lot of time and clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain name uses and if they're the proper ones or not in order for the domain name to be forwarded to the account that you have on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also allow you to set up private name servers under any domain registered within the account and use them not only for that domain name, but also for any other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
