Custom NS Records
NS Records are among the most important DNS
entries for a domain name
. Their main task is to identify the names of the DNS servers
and hence, the availability of a domain name. An NS change is required when you switch to a new hosting
provider. Changing the NS records for your domains, you will have to allow up to 24 hours for the update to propagate online.

Custom DNS Records
The possibility to exert control over your domain name is related to certain WHOIS Management
and DNS management
services provided by both domain registrars and web hosting
providers. While the WHOIS control option concerns only the formal part of a domain registration and serves for identification of the domain owner in the public Internet space, the Custom DNS Records
option refers to the functional side of the domains and is responsible for their online availability and behavior.
NS Records overview
One of the basic domain management options ensured by domain registrars and web hosts
is the possibility to edit the NS Records for a domain. NS records (Name Server Records) represent the basic infrastructure on which the Domain Name System (DNS) is built. Along with the other DNS records, they are stored in DNS zone files and users can make a DNS reference for them.

Great new Control Panel setup. Well done!
I really love the new control panel, the whole layout is much easier to navigate. The upload speed is much faster and I really enjoy the look and feel of the new site.
The new control panel is so much better. I think this one has much more control over files and how they are controled compared to the previous one.

Just a short note to say that the new control panel seems easier to work with than the old one. eep up the good work.
Love everything so far about the new Control Panel. Much more intuitive than before.
The main mission of the NS records is to identify the names of the DNS servers (primary and secondary) responsible for a certain zone and thus - the availability (DNS resolution) of a domain name. It is required that each DNS server of a certain DNS zone
has its own NS record assigned. This is done for backup purposes, so that when the primary DNS
is not available at a given moment the resolution request is sent to the secondary DNS.
It is important to know that NS records are only responsible for defining the names of DNS servers within a zone, i.e. they do not represent IP addresses
, necessary for a DNS resolution. For that purpose, administrators assign A records
(IP addresses) to the NS records for certain primary and secondary DNS servers, in order for a connection to be established with the servers and a DNS resolution operation to take place.
How to check up NS records
There are many online-based DNS look-up
tools, allowing for domain owners to check up the NS records for their domain names. To make an NS look-up simply specify your domain in the search box and hit the corresponding search button. Within seconds the Name Server Records responsible for your domain will be returned, including both the hostnames and their corresponding IP addresses.
