The Name Servers of a domain point out the DNS servers that deal with its DNS records. The IP address of the website (A record), the mail server that handles the emails for a domain address (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) etc are taken from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it needs to have their name servers, or NS records. If you would like to open a 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 forwarded to the DNS servers of the webhosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can view the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain address has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.
