The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain is the simplest way to point it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), and so on, so if you want to change any one of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the domain you are attempting to reach. That way the web site you will see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.

We also give you the chance to set up child name servers and for every single domain address registered within the account just as easily and all you need for that is a pair of IPs - either ours, if you're 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 point the domain name to their system. Unlike other companies, we do not charge additional for providing this additional DNS management service.
