The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. That way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the emails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each and every Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

This is done using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool that is a part of Hepsia and the user-friendly interface is going to make it easy to handle your domain name even if it is the first one you have ever registered. It takes just a click to see what name servers a domain address uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to forward a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with a few clicks more you are going to even be able to register private name servers for any one of the domain names that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of each and every company that you want the new NS records to point to.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

The name servers for each domain that's registered through our company could be changed with no more than a few mouse clicks through the advanced, though easy-to-use Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all semi-dedicated server plans. It's just as simple to view the current NS records for a given domain and to check if they're the ones that are needed for the domain name to be forwarded to your hosting account. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, is user-friendly enough to permit you to handle any domain name with ease even if you have not dealt with such matters before. If you wish, you can also register private name servers ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com and use them not just for the domain address under which they are set up, but also for any other domain name that you would like to host in the very same account. This option is very handy if you have customers of your own and you wish their websites to use your own name servers instead of our default ones. The service is available totally free.
