The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any domain to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for example, and you type the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, so you can look at the content from the proper location. Normally a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
