The Name Servers of a domain name reveal the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the web site (A record), the mail server that manages the e-mails for a domain (MX records), any text record in free form (TXT record), pointing (CNAME record) and so on are taken from the DNS servers of the website hosting company and for any domain name to be using them and to be directed to their hosting platform, it should have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open an Internet site, for example, and you type in the URL, the web browser connects to a DNS server, which keeps the NS records for the domain name and the request is then forwarded to the DNS servers of the hosting company where the A record of the website is retrieved, so that you can see the content from the right location. Usually a domain has two name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the difference between the two is simply visual.
