The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the group of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name 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 address and the web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every domain address has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting

Taking care of the NS records for any domain registered within a cloud website hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you merely moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain name, but even of multiple domain addresses at once whenever you want to point them all to the same hosting company. The exact same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain addresses to our platform as the transfer procedure won't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still forward to the old host. If you want to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you're going to be able to do that with a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, as an example, it will have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for directing any other domain address to the same account as well, not just the one they're created for.
