The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. In 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 and the web site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

The innovative Hepsia CP, which comes with our cloud website hosting plans, will permit you to deal with the name servers of each domain registered through our company with only a few mouse clicks, so even though you may haven't had a website hosting plan or a domain name before, you won't encounter any troubles. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, comes with a very user-friendly interface and it'll enable you to edit the NS records of any domain or even a number of domain names simultaneously. In addition we give you the chance to set up child name servers and for each and every domain name registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you're going to use the child NS to forward the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you will use the new records to direct the domain address to their system. Different from other companies, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.
