The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the site (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the web 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 a website, for example, and you insert the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the website is retrieved, enabling you to see the content from the correct location. Normally a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.
