The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. That 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 website content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each and every Internet domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Web Hosting

If you register a domain name in a web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers easily. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain names at a time, which could save you time and efforts when you have a lot of domains that you would like to forward to an alternative provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. Furthermore we enable you to set up private name servers for each domain registered with our company and in contrast to many other companies we don't charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domain names added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
