The NS (Name Server) records of a domain name reveal which DNS servers are authoritative for its zone. Simply, the zone is the group of all records for the domain name, so when you open a URL in a browser, your laptop or computer asks the DNS servers around the globe where the domain is hosted and from which servers the DNS records for the domain should be retrieved. With this a 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 requested from the right location, a mail relay server detects which server handles the emails for the domain (MX record) so that a message can be sent to the correct mailbox, and so on. Any change of these sub-records is conducted through the company whose name servers are used, permitting you to keep the web hosting and switch only your email provider for example. Each and every domain name has no less than two NS records - primary and secondary, that start with a prefix such as NS or DNS.

The newly created private name servers can be used for redirecting any other domain to the same account too, besides the one they're created for.
