The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. In this way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain name has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
In the event you register a domain name within a cloud web hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to manage its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with only a few mouse clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domain names at the same time, which will save you time and efforts when you have a large number of domain names you want to direct to another provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. Additionally we enable you to set up private name servers for each domain name registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will also have the ability to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses currently and if they're the ones needed to point that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/ 100% free. This will give more credibility to your site, especially when it is a business one, and you may use these name servers for every other domain name which you want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
