The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your PC asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain 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 right location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Every domain name has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

NS Records in Shared Website Hosting

In the event you register a domain name within a shared website hosting account from our company, you will be able to handle its name servers with ease. This can be done via the Registered Domains section of the in-house built Hepsia website hosting CP and with only a few mouse clicks you'll be able to update the NS records of one or even multiple domain names simultaneously, which will save you considerable time and efforts when you have a lot of domains that you would like to point to a different service provider. You can enter many name servers depending on how many the other provider gives you. Additionally we allow you to create private name servers for every single domain name registered with our company and in contrast to many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service. The new NS records can be used to redirect any other domain to the hosting platform of the company whose IP addresses you have used during the process, so every time you use our IPs for example, all domain addresses added to the account on our end can use these name servers.
