    Does anybody know what is "child name server" and what is its function(s)?
    I found this term in my domain's administration page. I've read the help, but i still don't understand.


    btw, i know it's too late, but merry christmas!

    It should be in the domain discussion then, not programming help.
    It means the nameservers that you make with that domain.

    ns.domain.com is a child nameserver of domain.com

    oh, you're right, sorry. mod, please move.

    let say i have domain.com, myhost.com the hosting that i use.

    can i point:
    domain.com -> ns1.domain.com, ns2.domain.com
    ns1.domain.com -> 111.222.333.444 (ip of ns1.myhost.com)
    ns2.domain.com -> 111.222.333.445 (ip of ns2.myhost.com)
