The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside a browser, your computer asks the DNS servers world-wide where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain address must be retrieved. That way a 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 site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server manages the emails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any modification of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are used, so you can keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every Internet domain has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

We also provide you with the opportunity to set up child name servers and for every domain name registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you'll use the child NS to forward the domain to the account on our cloud platform, or the ones of the third-party provider if you'll use the new records to point the domain to their system. Unlike other providers, we do not charge extra for providing this additional DNS management service.
