The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to 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 and the website content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

If you use a cloud web hosting from our company and you include a new domain address inside the account or transfer an existing one from a different company, you'll be able to control its NS records easily using the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared accounts. You can change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain or even for a group of domains at the same time with several mouse clicks. This is done via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface will make it easy to control your domain address even if it's the first one you've ever registered. It requires simply a click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to forward a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a couple of clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of any company that you'd like the new NS records to direct to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you will be able to handle the NS records of any domain name registered in it effortlessly. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is essentially an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything related to your web presence, provides a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section where you will find all your domain names isn't an exception, so even if you haven't had a domain name and a hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a few mouse clicks. You're also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domain names uses currently and if they're the ones required to direct that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we offer you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your web site, especially when it is a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain name that you might want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
