The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. With this a web 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 website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every domain address has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Web Hosting

Controlling the NS records for any domain name registered within a web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of multiple domains at the same time in case that you need to point them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform since the transfer process is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain address to the same account also, besides the one they're created for.
