The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the most convenient way to point 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 forth, if you want to edit any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it through their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to obtain the DNS records of the domain name you want to access. In this way the web site you will see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least two NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider will use depends solely on their preference.
