See what NS records are, what is their role and why each and every domain needs them to function properly.
The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal 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 PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. This way a web 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 site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the web 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 like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Web Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain registered within a shared web hosting
account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you merely moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you'll be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of multiple domain names at a time if you intend to forward them all to the same hosting company. Identical steps will also permit you to direct newly transferred domains to our platform given that the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still redirect to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company site, for example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for directing any other domain to the same account as well, not just the one they are created for.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you invest in a semi-dedicated server
account from our company, you'll be able to handle the NS records of each domain name registered in it effortlessly. The Hepsia CP, which is basically an all-in-one tool where you can manage everything related to your web presence, provides a very simple and easy-to-use interface. The section in which you will find your domains isn't an exception, so even if you have not had a domain and a web hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones won't take you more than a few mouse clicks. You'll also be able to see with a glance what name servers each of your domains uses right now and if they are the ones needed to point that domain name to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we give you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1/2.your-domain.com 100% free. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly if it is a business one, and you could use these name servers for any other domain name that you would like to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
