The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. That way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the website content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every Internet domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Web Hosting

In the event you register a domain name in a shared web hosting account from our company, you're going to be able to control its name servers without difficulty. This can be done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with just a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even a number of domain addresses at the same time, which can save you time and efforts in case you have a lot of domains you want to forward to a different service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other company gives you. We also allow you to set up private name servers for each Internet domain registered via our company and in contrast to many other providers we don't charge anything extra for this service. The new NS records can be used to forward any other domain address to the hosting platform of the provider whose IPs you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses included in the account on our end can use these name servers.

You will also be able to register child name servers under every one of your domains as an element of the free DNS administration services we provide with each and every plan and have ns1.your-domain.com and ns2.your-domain.com. The latter can be used for every domain you accommodate within the semi-dedicated account, so if you offer services to third-parties and host their web sites, employing this feature is going to give you more credibility as a business.
