The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain is the most effective way to point it to their system and all its sub-records are going to be handled 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 forth, so, in case you need to edit some of these records, you'll be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the Internet domain you want to reach. In this way the site that you'll see will be retrieved from the correct 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 practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider will use depends entirely on their preference.
