The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain name has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered inside a cloud web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you just seconds. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain, but even of multiple domain addresses at once if you want to forward them all to the same hosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform for the reason that transfer process doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still forward to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company web site, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you register a new domain within a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you're going to be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several mouse clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly administration tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have several domain names in the account, you are going to be able to update all of them at once, which could save you quite a lot of time and mouse clicks. You can also see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they're the proper ones or not in order for the domain to be pointed to the account that you've got on our sophisticated cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will even allow you to set up private name servers under any domain registered inside the account and use them not only for that domain address, but also for every other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
