The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, show which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific hosting provider for your domain name is the most convenient way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will 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), etcetera, if you would like to modify some of these records, you will be able to do it through their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain address reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you attempt to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain name you want to reach. This way the site that you will see will be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers usually have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least two NS records. There is no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.
