The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Essentially, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers globally where the domain address is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain ought to be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server deals with the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be sent to the needed mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is done through the company whose name servers are employed, so that you can keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every Internet domain has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.

We also permit you to create private name servers for every domain registered using our company and unlike many other providers we do not charge anything additional for this service.
