The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, indicate which servers manage the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain address is the most effective way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records will 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), etcetera, if you want to modify some of these records, you're going to be able to do it using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain address show 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 domain name you are trying to access. In this way the site you will see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain has at least two NS records. There isn't any functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.
