The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain name is the most effective way to direct 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), etc, so, in case you need to modify any of these records, you'll be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to get the DNS records of the Internet domain you are trying to reach. In this way the web site that you'll see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
