The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the web hosting company 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 type in the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then redirected 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 has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.
