The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain is the easiest way to forward 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 want to edit any of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain reveal 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 want to access. In this way the site you will see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain has at least two NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
