The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. That 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 IP and the web site content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be sent to the right mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every single Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name within a shared web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with a few clicks you are going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domains simultaneously, which can save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a large number of domain names you want to point to a different service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. Additionally we permit you to create private name servers for each and every domain name registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything extra for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for instance, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
