What is the AAAA record?
The NS record is the shortened equivalent of NameServer. This record is used to provide a domain name server.
It is common that one of the name servers in the delegated zone is in the zone itself. The ns1.dotroll.com record is in the dotroll.com zone, but there is a need to go up one level in the .com zone, otherwise we will be trapped. That’s why we need to pick up a record-breaking record. Such a foreign A record is called a glue record.
Querying NS record
For example, you can use the nslookup command in Windows to access record NS, while under Linux the host command.
Example of a Windows-based nslookup query:
nslookup -q=NS dotroll.com Server: google-public-dns-a.google.com Address: 220.127.116.11 Non-authoritative answer: dotroll.com nameserver = ns1.dotroll.com dotroll.com nameserver = ns2.dotroll.com
Example of Linux based host query:
host -t NS dotroll.com dotroll.com name server ns2.dotroll.com. dotroll.com name server ns1.dotroll.com.
NS record format
