The NS (Name Server) records of a domain point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server handles 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 conducted through the company whose name servers are used, so that you can 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 like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Shared Hosting
In the event you register a domain name in a shared hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to take care of its name servers without difficulty. This can be done using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a couple of mouse 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 a lot of time and efforts when you have a large number of domains that you would like to forward to a different service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. Furthermore we permit you to set up private name servers for every single domain address registered through our company and unlike many other providers we don't charge anything more for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to direct any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so if you use our IPs for example, all domains added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
