The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name show which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the group of all records for the domain, so when you open a URL within an Internet browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers worldwide where the domain name is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name should be retrieved. With this a browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain is so that the latter is mapped to an IP address and the web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) so a message can be sent to the right mailbox, and so forth. Any modification of these sub-records is performed using the company whose name servers are employed, enabling you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for instance. Every single domain address has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
