The NS (Name Server) records of a domain reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. In simple terms, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL within a web 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 ought to be retrieved. This way a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain name is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the site content is requested from the proper location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the e-mails for the domain address (MX record) to ensure a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, etc. Any modification of these sub-records is done using the company whose name servers are employed, permitting you to keep the web hosting and change only your email provider for example. Every single Internet domain has at least two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix like NS or DNS.
