The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. With this a web 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 website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
If you use a shared web hosting from our us and you register a new domain address within the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you're going to be able to handle its NS records easily using the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel, offered with all shared accounts. You are able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for a group of domains at a time with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it simple to control your domain even if it is the first one you've ever registered. It requires only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to direct a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with a few mouse clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IP addresses of every provider that you want the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
The name servers for any domain name that is registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few clicks using the leading-edge, albeit easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to view the current NS records for a given domain and to determine if they're the ones that are needed for the domain address to be directed to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to allow you to control any domain address effortlessly even if you have never dealt with such matters before. If you'd like, you may even register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain under which they are created, but also for any other domain name that you might want to host in the same account. This option is very handy when you have customers of your own and you would like their web sites to use your own name servers in lieu of our default ones. The service is available totally free.
