The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for example, and you type in the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, enabling you to see the content from the proper location. Ordinarily a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.

We also give you the ability to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every domain registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a couple of IPs - either ours, if you are going to use the child NS to forward 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 direct the domain to their system. Different from other companies, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
