The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the e-mails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a website, for example, and you type 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 web site is retrieved, allowing you to see the content from the proper location. Commonly 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 only visual.
