The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for instance, and you insert the URL, the Internet 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 company where the A record of the web site is obtained, so that you can see the content from the right location. Usually a domain has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.
