The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the group of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. In this 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 site content is requested from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the emails for the domain name (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Website Hosting
If you register a domain name within a shared website hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers with ease. This is accomplished via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and with only a few mouse clicks you're going to be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domains simultaneously, which can save you time and efforts in case you have a lot of domain addresses that you'd like to redirect to an alternative service provider. You can enter a number of name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Furthermore we permit you to create private name servers for every single domain name registered through our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to point any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IPs you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
