The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the site (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), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting provider and for any domain address to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a site, for example, and you enter the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the proper 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.
