The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given host company for your domain name is the most convenient 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), etc, so, in case you need to edit any one of these records, you will be able to do it by using their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain 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 are trying to access. In this way the 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 each and every domain name has at least two NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a website hosting provider is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.
