The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that are responsible for its DNS records. The Internet protocol address of the site (A record), the mail server that takes care of the e-mails for a domain name (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), forwarding (CNAME record) etc are extracted from the DNS servers of the hosting company and for any domain address to be using them and to be forwarded to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you wish to open a website, for instance, and you type in the URL, the Internet browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain address and the request is then pointed to the DNS servers of the hosting provider where the A record of the site is retrieved, enabling you to look at the content from the correct location. Commonly a domain name has 2 name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the distinction between the two is only visual.
