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 address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so forth are obtained from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be forwarded 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 enter the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is obtained, allowing you to see the content from the right location. Usually a domain name has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is simply visual.
