What is the Name-servers?

A name server is a specific server on the Internet that, say to where a website is to be found. Or handles queries from your local system, about the location of a domain and it’s various services.
The resolving process starts while a visitor goes to your website. The visitor puts your website name in the Internet browser. The internet browser then looks associated ip address of your website in it’s own host file and if it didn’t find in own host file then sends the dns query through his resolver dns to over the internet. Then get the ip address of your website and submit the http request to associate web server with ip address and opens your web page. The whole process is such as to looking phone number in a phone book. For instance, while you lift up the phone book to view for the name of your friend xyz, in short a Name-servers helps find a website address!
