The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. This way a 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 requested from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Every single domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Website Hosting
If you register a domain name in a website hosting account from our company, you are going to be able to manage its name servers easily. This is accomplished using the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting CP and with only a few clicks you will be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain addresses simultaneously, which could save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a large number of domain names you want to point to a different provider. You can enter numerous name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. Additionally we enable you to create private name servers for every single domain address registered using our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.
