The NS (Name Server) records of a domain 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 personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. This 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 website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each 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 Website Hosting
When you use a website hosting from our company and you add a new domain address in the account or transfer an existing one from another provider, you are going to be able to handle its NS records easily using the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all shared accounts. You'll be able to change the current name servers or enter additional ones for a single domain address or even for several domain addresses simultaneously with several clicks. This is done through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool which is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to control your domain even if it's the first you've ever registered. It requires simply a mouse click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to forward a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with a few clicks more you will even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domains that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each and every provider that you would like the new NS records to direct to.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you invest in a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you'll be able to manage the NS records of every domain address registered inside it without difficulty. The Hepsia Control Panel, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can handle everything associated with your web presence, provides a very simple and user-friendly interface. The section where you will find all of your domains isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain name and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a several mouse clicks. You are also going to be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses right now and if they're the ones required to forward that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com at no extra cost. This will give more credibility to your site, especially if it's a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain that you'd like to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
