The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain 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 an Internet site, for example, 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 sent to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, allowing you to look at the content from the right location. Usually a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.
