The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. In this way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address 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 (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each domain name has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

In the event you register a domain name inside a shared hosting account from our company, you'll be able to take care of its name servers easily. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain names simultaneously, which will save you considerable time and efforts in case you have a large number of domain addresses that you would like to redirect to another provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider offers you. In addition we permit you to create private name servers for each Internet domain registered via our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
