The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain is the most convenient 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 forth, so, in case you need to change some of these records, you're going to be able to do it by using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain reveal the DNS servers that 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 are trying to access. In this way the website that you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least 2 NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a host company will use depends only on their preference.
