The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the collection of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL inside an Internet browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. In this way a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an IP and the site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server manages the e-mails for the domain name (MX record) to ensure that a message can be forwarded to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are used, so you're able to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every domain name has at least 2 NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
