The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a web browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, etc. Any change of these sub-records is conducted using the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
If you register a domain name within a cloud web hosting account from our company, you'll be able to control its name servers with ease. This is done through the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia hosting Control Panel and with only a few mouse clicks you will be able to update the NS records of a single one or even a number of domains at once, which will save you time and efforts when you have a lot of domain names that you would like to direct to another service provider. You can enter multiple name servers depending on how many the other company offers you. Additionally we permit you to create private name servers for every domain name registered via our company and unlike many other companies we don't charge anything more for this service. The new NS records can be used to direct any other domain name to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so when you use our IPs for instance, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you choose a semi-dedicated server account from our company, you're going to be able to handle the NS records of any domain address registered in it with ease.

As an additional feature, we present you with opportunity to create child name servers dns1/ totally free. This will give more credibility to your web site, particularly if it's a business one, and you may use these name servers for any other domain that you might want to host in the semi-dedicated account as well.
