NS Lookup - Check The Name Server of a Domain

With EXPERTE.com's NS Lookup, you can easily fetch a domain's name server entries in no time. To get started, just enter the domain you want to check in the uppermost field.

After that, you'll receive a table containing the domain's NS entries. In the event that you would prefer to determine the IP of a domain (A- and AAAA entries), please use our DNS Check instead.

NS Entry - Structure

A name server entry tells you which name server is responsible for a particular domain.

NS entries are structured as follows:





Domain for which the entry is


Name of the authoritative name server for this domain


Time to live (how long the entry should remain in the cache)

NS Lookup - Process

In order to determine the name server for a domain, such as experte.de, our tool does the following:

  1. 1.
    The client or DNS resolver requests the name server entry for the domain (in our case, experte.de) from a so-called root name server. This replies with the following data:

    NS a.nic.de.
    NS f.nic.de.
  2. 2.
    The client or DNS resolver now requests the name server entries from the DNS server that is responsible for the .de zone. This, in turn, answers with the following information:

    NS tom.ns.cloudflare.com.
    NS coco.ns.cloudflare.com.
  3. 3.
    (Optional) The client or DNS resolver can now determine the IP address for the domain (experte.de) by requesting the A record from the name server tom.ns.cloudflare.com or coco.ns.cloudflare.com.
