The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can view the content from the correct location. Usually a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.
