Additional QueriesWhat’s a “Query”?
When someone types in a domain address, like example.com, they are essentially asking a question about what IP address their machine should connect to. As an authoritative DNS provider, NS1 answers these questions when asked by any machine including recursive DNS services offered by Internet Service Providers (ISP).

Additional RecordsWhat’s a “Record”?
A DNS record is the basic unit of information in the DNS. A record is identified by a domain name (like www.example.com), a type (like A, AAAA, MX, NS, and so on) indicating the type of information contained in the record, some control information like DNS cache time-to-live (TTL), and "answer" data like server IPs, mail hosts, etc, depending on the record type.
Additional Filter ChainsWhat’s a “Filter Chain”?
Filters are mix and match rules that attach to your DNS records to form an intelligent routing algorithm called a Filter Chain. Depending on your plan, you will be able to attach Filter Chains to a certain number of records.
