The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The IP of the 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) etc are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting provider and for any Internet domain to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it has to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, for instance, and you insert the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is retrieved, so you can view the content from the correct location. Ordinarily a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is simply visual.
