The NS, or Name Server records of a domain, point out which servers deal with the Domain Name System (DNS) records for it. Setting the name servers of a specific host company for your domain address is the easiest way to point it to their system and all its sub-records will 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), etcetera, so if you wish to edit some of these records, you are going to be able to do it by using their system. Put simply, the NS records of a domain 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 website that you're going to see is going to be retrieved from the proper location. The name servers typically have a prefix “ns” or “dns” and each domain name has at least two NS records. There isn't any functional difference between the two prefixes, so what type a web hosting provider is going to use depends completely on their preference.

It requires only a mouse click to see what name servers a domain name uses at the moment or if they're the correct ones to point a domain name to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for any of the domain addresses that you own.
