The NS, or Name Server records of a domain name, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a given hosting provider for your domain name is the simplest way to forward 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), etc, if you want to edit any one of these records, you will be able to do it via their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain address show the DNS servers that 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 2 NS records. There is no practical difference between the two prefixes, so what type a hosting provider will use depends entirely on their preference.
