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 name, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. In 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 Internet protocol address and the site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the emails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be delivered to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each domain address has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Website Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered in a cloud website hosting
account on our state of the art cloud platform is going to take you merely moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool inside the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not only of a single domain name, but even of several domain addresses at once whenever you intend to direct them all to the same website hosting provider. The exact same steps will also permit you to point newly transferred domain addresses to our platform for the reason that transfer procedure does not change the name servers automatically and the domains will still redirect to the old host. If you need to create private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a couple of clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The newly created private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain to the same account as well, besides the one they are created for.
