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 name, so when you open a URL in an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name 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 emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain address has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Website Hosting
In the event you register a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, you will be able to manage its name servers without difficulty. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with just a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domains at once, which can save you time and efforts when you have a large number of domain addresses that you would like to forward to a different provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. We also allow you to create private name servers for every single domain registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider 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.
