The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address ought to be retrieved. With this a 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 correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the emails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each domain address has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Website Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered in a website hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform will take you only seconds. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia Control Panel, you will be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain, but even of multiple domains at a time whenever you would like to forward them all to the same website hosting provider. Identical steps will also enable you to point newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you would like to set up private name servers for a domain name registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with only a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company site, for example, it's going to have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own.
