The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain address is the simplest way to direct 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 would like to change any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it via their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address point out 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 domain name you are attempting to reach. This way the site you will see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain address has at least two NS records. There's no practical difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company will use depends entirely on their preference.
