The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your PC asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain must be retrieved. That 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 Internet protocol address and the website content is required from the correct location, a mail relay server finds out which server handles the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, so that you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

Via the feature-rich Domain Manager tool within the Hepsia Control Panel, you're going to be able to change the name servers not only of one domain, but even of multiple domains at a time in case that you want to direct them all to the same hosting company. Identical steps will also allow you to direct newly transferred domain names to our platform as the transfer procedure doesn't change the name servers automatically and the domain names will still point to the old host.

The new private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain to the same account too, not just the one they are created for.
