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, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address should be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the web site content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server deals with the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain address has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Hosting

If you register a domain name inside a shared hosting account from our company, you will be able to take care of its name servers effortlessly. 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 a single one or even a number of domain addresses at once, which can save you a lot of time and efforts when you have a large number of domains that you'd like to direct to another provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company provides you with. Furthermore we allow you to set up private name servers for any domain address registered via our company and unlike many other companies we do not charge anything additional for this service. The newly created NS records can be used to forward any other domain name to the hosting platform of the provider whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so each time you use our IPs in particular, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
