What is a "NS" record?

Problem:

What is a "NS" record?

Solution:

A Name Server Record, or NS Record, indicates which name servers are authoritative for the zone.

E.g ns1.example.com and ns2.example.com

In this example both ns1 and ns2 would also need A records.

NS Records can also be used to assign authoritative name servers for a subdomain.
