The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a web 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. This way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is required from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every single domain has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Website Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain address registered within a website hosting
account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you merely moments. Through the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you will be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain name, but even of numerous domain names at a time in case that you would like to direct them all to the same hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain names to our platform since the transfer process is not going to change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you'll be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so when you have a company site, for example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account as well, besides the one they are created for.
