What Are Nameservers?
Firstly a little help to make this clear in terms of what a name server actually is. A nameserver is the name that helps point your internet service provider to the actual server which controls the DNS for a domain name. It converts the name to a unique IP address and you will have a minimum of two nameservers which allows two access points to the DNS server as redundancy.
Every domain name has to have these records as these are what dictates which hosting company hosts the website files and email.

How Long Before Updates To Nameservers Are Live
After updating your domain name nameservers you must allow a minimum of 4 to 8 hours, preferably 24 hours for internet service providers to access these changes. Some Internet service providers will not update for 24 to 48 hours so you must wait.
You can check if the domain name details have actually changed by visiting WHOIS websites.
