Find out what NS records are and why they are crucial for virtually every domain.
The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. This 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 IP address and the website content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain address has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered in a cloud web hosting
account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain address, but even of many domains at a time in case that you need to forward them all to the same hosting company. Exactly the same steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer procedure won't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you want to set up private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a couple of mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company web site, for instance, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain to the same account as well, not only the one they're created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you invest in a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you'll be able to handle the NS records of any domain registered within it with ease. The Hepsia CP, which is essentially an all-in-one tool where you can control everything related to your web presence, comes with a very simple and intuitive interface. The section where you will find all of your domains isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain address and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a few clicks. You'll also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain addresses uses currently and if they are the ones required to forward that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com free of charge. This will give more credibility to your website, especially when it's a business one, and you can use these name servers for every other domain that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
