The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. That 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 address and the website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every single domain name has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

If you register a domain name in a cloud web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to control its name servers easily. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain names at the same time, which could save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a large number of domain addresses you want to direct to a different provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Additionally we enable you to set up private name servers for each domain registered via our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
