What is a nameserver?

Nameservers can be described as a street. Within the nameserver DNS records point domain names to their corresponding IP address. This IP address belongs to a server where the website is hosted. 
Without nameservers the internet would be much less human friendly with users having to remember the IP addresses of each website they visit!
