The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your PC asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address 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 discovers which server handles the emails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the appropriate mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is conducted with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each and every domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

We also give you the ability to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for each domain registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to direct the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you will use the new records to point the domain address to their system. Unlike other providers, we don't charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.
