The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the website (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the website hosting provider and for any domain address to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for instance, 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 webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is retrieved, so you can see the content from the correct location. Normally a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is just visual.
