The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. In this way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every single domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
In case you register a domain name inside a shared website hosting account from our company, you'll be able to handle its name servers effortlessly. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of a single one or even multiple domain names at the same time, which can save you considerable time and efforts if you have a huge number of domain addresses that you would like to direct to another provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider provides you with. Additionally we enable you to set up private name servers for every single domain registered through our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs in particular, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
