The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the right mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each domain name has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

Managing the NS records for any domain name registered in a cloud website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you only moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain name, but even of multiple domain addresses at once in case that you would like to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. The very same steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform since the transfer process doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still redirect to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company site, for instance, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for pointing any other domain address to the same account as well, besides the one they are created for.
