The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP address of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a site, for instance, and you enter the URL, the web 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 hosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, so that you can view the content from the correct location. Usually a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
