The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain name is the easiest 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), and so on, so if you want to modify any of these records, you are going to be able to do it through their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain show the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the domain you are attempting to access. In this way the website that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least 2 NS records. There's no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.
