The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name must be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the website content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server discovers which server manages the e-mails for the domain (MX record) to ensure that a message can be delivered to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is done with the help of the company whose name servers are employed, so you can keep the website hosting and switch only your email provider for instance. Each and every Internet domain has a minimum of 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

We also give you the opportunity to create child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every single domain address registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to point the domain address to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party company if you'll use the new records to point the domain address to their system. Different from other companies, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
