The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every Internet domain has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

In case you register a domain name within a shared web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to handle its name servers with ease. This is done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with just a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain names at once, which could save you a lot of time and efforts in case you have a lot of domain addresses that you would like to point to another service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. Additionally we enable you to create private name servers for each domain name registered with our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to point any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domains included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
