The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should 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 website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each domain name has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

If you want to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you have a company website, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account also, not just the one they're created for.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you register a new domain inside a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar company, you will be able to update its NS records as required without any problems even if you haven't had a domain name of your own before. The process takes several clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, which comes with our semi-dedicated packages. If you have multiple domain addresses in the account, you are going to be able to update all of them simultaneously, which can save you a great deal of time and clicks. Also you can see with ease the name servers which a domain uses and if they're the right ones or not as a way for the domain name to be directed to the account that you have on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will also enable you to create private name servers under any domain name registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for every other one that you wish to direct to our cloud platform.
