The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain is the easiest way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will be taken care of 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 if you need to edit any of these records, you'll be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the Internet domain you are attempting to access. In this way the website that you're going to see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company is going to use depends solely on their preference.
