The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers handle the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular host company for your domain is the most convenient way to forward 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, so, in case you wish to change any of these records, you're going to be able to do it via their system. In other words, the NS records of a domain name point out 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 Internet domain you want to reach. That way the web site you'll see will be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each and every domain has at least 2 NS records. There's no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a web hosting provider will use depends exclusively on their preference.
