A domain name server is a server that governs the DNS records, such as ARECORD (Host), CNAMES (Aliases), and MX (Mail Exchange) for a domain name.
Every domain name must have a primary nameserver (eg. ns1.domainname.com), and at least one secondary nameserver (ns2.domainname.com etc). This requirement aims to make the domain still reachable even if one nameserver becomes inaccessible.
