The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a web 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 should be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the emails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single domain address has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Hosting

In case you register a domain name in a cloud hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to handle its name servers easily. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain addresses at the same time, which could save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a lot of domain names that you'd like to point to an alternative service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. We allow you to set up private name servers for every Internet domain registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
