The Name Servers of a domain show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP address of the web site (A record), the mail server that deals with the emails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), directing (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open an Internet site, for instance, and you input the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then sent to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the site is retrieved, so that you can see the content from the correct 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 only visual.
