The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific 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), etcetera, so, in case you wish to change some of these records, you'll be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name show the DNS servers which 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 are attempting to reach. In this way the website that you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.
