    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.

    Thanks.

    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
