NS Records
Posted by on 14 June 2016 04:42 PM

The NS records allow you to delegate a sub-domain of your domain to another DNS service outside our own.

This is useful for large companies who may have different sites run by different hosting companies (england.bigcompanyname.com, france.bigcompanyname.com, etc.) so they can delegate those sub-domains to the specific nameservers for each company.

Unless you are splitting up your domain in such a fashion, you should NOT edit this information. Leaving the NS records as LOCAL automatically populates the fields with our NS records.

To edit/access the NS records feature you will first need to make sure that it is enabled.

Please do the following:

1. Log into your easyDNS account
2. Click on PREFERENCES on the left sidebar menu
3. Under DOMAIN PREFERENCES, make sure you have YES checked off for SHOW ADVANCED DNS RECORDS
4. Confirm changes

9. Click NEXT

Once the changes have been made and new information propagated, anyone looking up that zone will now be relayed along to the system you have designated.
