The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Basically, the zone is the selection of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your 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 web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the site content is required from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the emails for the domain (MX record) to ensure a message can be forwarded to the appropriate mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is performed through the company whose name servers are employed, so you're able to keep the website hosting and change only your email provider for example. Each and every domain name has no less than 2 NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
