The Name Servers of a domain name point out the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the e-mails for a domain (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 pointed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open an Internet site, for instance, and you type in the URL, the browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the web site is obtained, so you can see the content from the correct location. Normally a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is only visual.
