The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain is the simplest way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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, if you want to modify any one 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 name 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 Internet domain you want to access. In this way the web site you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider will use depends only on their preference.
