The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the website (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), directing (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 forwarded to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for example, and you type in the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is retrieved, so you can view the content from the correct location. Usually a domain address has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.
