The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain address 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), and so forth, so if you wish to edit some of these records, you are going to be able to do it via their system. To put it differently, 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 reach. This way the site that you will 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's no functional difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company will use depends only on their preference.
