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 specific hosting provider for your domain is the easiest way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), etc, if you wish to change 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 reveal 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 domain name you want to reach. In this way the website that you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least 2 NS records. There is no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.
