The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. That way 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 and the site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a shared web hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to manage its name servers without difficulty. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with just a couple of clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even numerous domain addresses at the same time, which will save you time and efforts in case you have a large number of domains that you'd like to redirect to another provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. In addition we enable you to set up private name servers for every 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 point any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for instance, all domain names included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
