The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain address is the simplest way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will be managed on their end. This includes A (the IP address of the server/website), MX (mail server), TXT (free text), SRV (services), CNAME (forwarding), etc, if you would like to modify any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the domain name you are trying to access. That way the web site that you will see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.

Additionally we give you the opportunity to create child name servers and for every domain registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IP addresses - either ours, if you will use the child NS to point the domain name 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 companies, we do not charge more for providing this additional DNS management service.
