The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the range of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in an Internet 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 name ought to be retrieved. In this way a 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 web site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so that a message can be delivered to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Hosting
Managing the NS records for any domain address registered inside a cloud hosting account on our cutting-edge cloud platform is going to take you merely moments. Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool in the Hepsia CP, you're going to be able to change the name servers not just of a single domain address, but even of several domain addresses at once if you want to point them all to the same webhosting provider. The exact same steps will also allow you to point newly transferred domains to our platform as the transfer procedure won't change the name servers automatically and the domains will still direct to the old host. If you need to set up private name servers for a domain registered on our end, you are going to be able to do that with just a few mouse clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company website, for example, it will have more credibility if it employs name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for forwarding any other domain name to the same account also, not only the one they are created for.
