The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, show which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a particular hosting provider for your domain is the easiest way to forward it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), etc, so, in case you need to edit any one of these records, you're going to be able to do it through their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain show 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 you are attempting to access. In this way the site you'll see is going to be retrieved from the correct location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain address has at least two NS records. There isn't any sensible difference between the two prefixes, so which one a host company is going to use depends exclusively on their preference.
