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


3. Under DOMAIN PREFERENCES, make sure you have YES selected for SHOW ADVANCED DNS RECORDS
4. Confirm changes

5. Click on DNS for said domain (this will bring you to the DNS SETTINGS page)

6. Click on the MODULAR EDITOR
7. Click on the wrench tool for NAME SERVERS NS RECORDS

8. Put in your host and corresponding server

NOTE: You can use the @ symbol under HOST if you would like to make it for the root domain.

9. Click NEXT

10. Confirm your changes

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.
