The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a web browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain name 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 address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the website content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the emails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Each Internet domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

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