The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal 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 in an Internet browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the website content is requested from the right location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each Internet domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
NS Records in Cloud Web Hosting
Taking care of the NS records for any domain name registered within a cloud web hosting account on our top-notch cloud platform is going to take you only moments. Using the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia CP, you are going to be able to change the name servers not just of one domain address, but even of many domains at once in case that you need to point them all to the same hosting provider. Exactly the same steps will also allow you to forward newly transferred domain names to our platform since the transfer process isn't going to change the name servers automatically and the domain addresses will still point to the old host. If you want to create private name servers for an Internet domain registered on our end, you will be able to do that with only a few clicks and with no additional charge, so if you decide to have a company web site, as an example, it'll have more credibility if it uses name servers of its own. The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain name to the same account also, not just the one they're created for.
