The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain address is the most effective way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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, so, in case you wish to change some of these records, you are going to be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers that are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the Internet domain you want to reach. This way the website that you're going to see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least two NS records. There isn't any functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider will use depends entirely on their preference.
