The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the range of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should 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 website content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted 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 example. Each and every Internet domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you register a domain name in a cloud website hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to manage its name servers easily. This is done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domains simultaneously, which could save you time and efforts when you have a large number of domain addresses that you would like to direct to another provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. In addition we allow you to set up private name servers for any domain address registered through our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
