The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain address is the simplest way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will be handled 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, if you wish to edit any of these records, you'll be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain 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 obtain the DNS records of the Internet domain you want to access. This way the web site you'll see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider will use depends entirely on their preference.
