What are NS records? Why are they crucial for your domain?
The NS (Name Server) records of a domain show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the group of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. That way a web 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 requested from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server takes care of the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, allowing you to keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each Internet domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
NS Records in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you register a new domain name in a semi-dedicated server account or transfer an existing one from another registrar provider, you are going to be able to update its NS records as required without any difficulties even if you have not had a domain of your own before. The process takes a few clicks in Hepsia - the user-friendly management tool, included with our semi-dedicated plans. If you have many different domain addresses within the account, you'll be able to update all of them simultaneously, which could save you a great deal of time and mouse clicks. Additionally you can see with ease the name servers that a domain address uses and if they are the right ones or not for the domain name to be directed to the account which you have on our innovative cloud hosting platform. Hepsia will permit you to create private name servers under any domain registered inside the account and use them not just for that domain name, but also for any other one that you would like to point to our cloud platform.
