The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. With this 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 website content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered within a shared web hosting account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to change the name servers not only of one domain name, but even of many domains at once in case that you would like to direct them all to the same hosting provider. The exact same steps will also enable you to forward newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you will be able to do that with just a few clicks and with no additional charge, so in case you have a company web site, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain name to the same account as well, not just the one they are created for.
