The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain is the simplest way to forward 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), etc, so, in case you wish to edit any of these records, you'll be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address point out 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 domain name you are attempting to reach. That way the web site that you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least two NS records. There's no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company is going to use depends solely on their preference.
