The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. In this way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every Internet domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Website Hosting
In case you register a domain name within a website hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain names simultaneously, which could save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a lot of domains that you would like to forward to a different provider. You can enter several name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We also enable you to set up private name servers for each and every Internet domain registered with 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 IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs in particular, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
