The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the group of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within 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 must be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single domain name has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Hosting
In the event you register a domain name in a hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to handle its name servers with ease. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even several domain names at once, which could save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a lot of domain addresses that you would like to redirect to another service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Furthermore we permit you to set up private name servers for every Internet domain registered using our company and unlike 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 address to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
