The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out 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 inside a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. That way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain address has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud website hosting products, allows you to take care of the name servers of every domain registered through us with simply a couple of mouse clicks, so even when you have not had a web hosting plan or a domain before, you simply won't encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and will allow you to edit the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain addresses together. We also offer you the chance to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each and every domain address registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to forward the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to redirect the domain name to their system. Different from other providers, we don't charge additional 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're going to be able to handle the NS records of any domain address registered inside it easily. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is in essence an all-in-one tool where you can manage everything relevant to your web presence, offers a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find your domains is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones will not take you more than a several mouse clicks. You'll also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domains uses right now and if they are the ones required to direct that domain to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional 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 website, especially when it is a business one, and you could use these name servers for any other domain name that you would like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
