The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must 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 IP and the website content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server handles the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are used, enabling you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each Internet domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

The avant-garde Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with our shared hosting products, will permit you to control the name servers of each domain registered through our company with just a couple of mouse clicks, so even when you haven't had a website hosting plan or a domain name before, you simply won't encounter any problems. The Domain Manager tool, which is a part of Hepsia, features a very user-friendly interface and will permit you to edit the NS records of any domain address or even a number of domain addresses together. We provide you with the ability to set up child name servers and for every single domain address registered inside 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 name 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 name to their system. In contrast to other companies, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.

NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you go for a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you are going to be able to manage the NS records of every domain registered in it with ease.

The section where you will find your domains is not an exception, so even if you have never had a domain name and a website hosting account before, updating the name servers or entering additional ones is not going to take you more than a couple of mouse clicks. You'll also be able to see with a glance what name servers each and every one of your domains uses at the moment and if they're the ones needed to point that domain address to the semi-dedicated account. As an added feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ 100% free. This will give more credibility to your web site, especially if it is a business one, and you could use these name servers for every other domain which you want to host within the semi-dedicated account as well.
