The Name Servers of a domain reveal the DNS servers that manage its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are extracted from the DNS servers of the website 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 site, for example, and you enter the URL, the 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 web site is obtained, so that you can see the content from the right location. Ordinarily a domain name has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is just visual.
