The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, indicate which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain name is the easiest way to direct it to their system and all its sub-records are going to 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), and so on, so if you would like to modify any one of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. To put it differently, the NS records of a domain name reveal the DNS servers which are authoritative for it, so when you try to open a web address, the DNS servers are contacted to retrieve the DNS records of the domain you want to reach. This way the site you'll see is going to be retrieved from the right location. The name servers normally have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and every single domain name has at least 2 NS records. There is absolutely no sensible difference between the two prefixes, so what kind a hosting provider is going to use depends solely on their preference.
