The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain is the simplest way to point 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), and so on, if you want to modify any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address show 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 you want to access. In this way the web site that you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no functional difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider will use depends completely on their preference.
