The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain address is the most convenient way to point it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), etcetera, so if you need to edit some of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain name point out the DNS servers which 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 reach. This way the website that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There is absolutely no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a host company is going to use depends completely on their preference.
