The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, reveal which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain name is the easiest 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), and so on, if you would like to change any of these records, you will be able to do it using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address show 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 name you are trying to access. This way the site that you'll see will be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a web hosting provider is going to use depends entirely on their preference.
