The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name 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 Internet protocol address and the site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every Internet domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you register a domain name in a cloud web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain names simultaneously, which will save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a lot of domains that you would like to forward to another provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. We enable you to set up private name servers for each and every domain name registered using our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
