The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the web hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for instance, and you insert the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, enabling you to look at the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is only visual.
