The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. In this way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every Internet domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you register a domain name inside a cloud web hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names at once, which will save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a lot of domains that you'd like to redirect to an alternative provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Additionally we allow you to set up private name servers for every domain address registered using our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
