The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to 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 IP and the web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

The outstanding Hepsia CP, which comes with our shared website hosting plans, will permit you to handle the name servers of each and every domain registered through our company with just a few mouse clicks, so even when you have not had a web hosting plan or a domain before, you won't encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, has a very user-friendly interface and it will enable you to change the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domains together. In addition we offer you the ability to set up child name servers and for every domain name registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you will use the child NS to direct the domain name to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to redirect the domain to their system. Different from other providers, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
