The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. That way a 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 website content is required from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia CP, which comes with our shared website hosting packages, allows you to deal with the name servers of every domain registered through us with just a couple of mouse clicks, so even if you have not had a website hosting plan or a domain address before, you will not encounter any difficulties. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it will allow you to change the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain addresses all at once. Additionally we give you the chance to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each domain name registered inside the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you'll use the child NS to forward the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to direct the domain name to their system. Different from other providers, we don't charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to control the NS records of each domain address registered inside it easily. The Hepsia CP, which is in essence an all-in-one tool for you to handle everything relevant to your web presence, provides a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section in which you will find all of your domains isn't an exception, so even if you have never had a domain address and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a few clicks. You'll also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers every one of your domains uses right now and if they are the ones required to point that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly if it is a business one, and you may use these name servers for any other domain name that you'd like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
