The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name point out which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the range of all records for the domain address, so when you open a URL in a browser, your personal computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain name ought to be retrieved. With this a web browser finds out what the A or AAAA record of the domain address is so that the latter is mapped to an Internet protocol address and the web site content is required from the right location, a mail relay server finds out which server deals with the e-mails for the domain (MX record) so a message can be forwarded to the correct mailbox, and so forth. Any change of these sub-records is performed with the help of the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each domain name has a minimum of two NS records - primary and secondary, which start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.
