The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. That way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, and so forth. 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 domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Hosting

The innovative Hepsia Control Panel, offered with with our hosting packages, will enable you to handle the name servers of every single domain name registered through us with simply a couple of clicks, so even when you have never 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 will enable you to modify the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domain addresses simultaneously. We provide you with the chance to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every domain address registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to direct the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to forward the domain address to their system. Different from other providers, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

Our semi-dedicated server accounts are handled through Hepsia - an all-in-one tool with highly user-friendly interface, which will allow you to control your domains without difficulty even when you have never used a web hosting account or a domain address in the past. Changing the NS records for each and every domain address registered with our company, viewing the current ones and whether they are correct or not as to point that domain name to our cloud hosting platform is also fairly simple and requires as little as a few mouse clicks. You will also be able to register child name servers under each and every one of your domain addresses as a part of the free DNS control services we offer with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for any domain address which you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their sites, employing this feature will give you a lot more credibility as a business.
