The Name Servers of a domain name show the DNS servers that handle its DNS records. The IP of the website (A record), the mail server that manages the emails 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 hosting provider and for any domain name to be using them and to be pointed to their hosting platform, it ought to have their name servers, or NS records. If you want to open a website, for example, and you enter the URL, the web 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 company where the A record of the website is retrieved, allowing you to see the content from the right location. Normally a domain address has a couple of name servers that start with NS or DNS as a prefix and the contrast between the two is just visual.

It takes simply a click to see what name servers a domain uses at the moment or if they are the correct ones to direct a domain address to the hosting space on our end and with only a few clicks more you'll even be able to register private name servers for each of the domain addresses that you own. For the latter option you can use the IPs of any provider that you'd like the new NS records to forward to.
