The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are obtained from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for instance, and you type the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then redirected to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, allowing you to look at the content from the correct location. Ordinarily a domain has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.
