The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, and you insert the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, enabling you to see the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.

In addition we offer you the opportunity to set up child name servers dns1.your-domain.com and dns2.your-domain.com for every domain address registered in the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IP addresses - either ours, if you will use the child NS to point the domain 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 name to their system. Unlike other providers, we don't charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
