The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the simplest way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records will be managed on their end. This includes A (the IP address of the server/website), MX (mail server), TXT (free text), SRV (services), CNAME (forwarding), and so on, if you wish to modify any of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address reveal the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain you are trying to reach. This way the website that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least 2 NS records. There's no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.
