The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain 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 is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, allowing you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each domain address has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered in a cloud web hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you merely seconds. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain address, but even of several domains at a time if you would like to point them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform because the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still direct to the old host. If you wish to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company web site, for instance, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain address to the same account also, not only the one they're created for.
