Any active domain name that's added in a hosting account has a variety of records which allow it to perform properly. In the common case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the domain name is hosted and they are set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are particular records created through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (email server), SRV (employing a domain name for non-website purposes on a certain port number such as Voice-over-IP), and many others. With access to these records and by having the capacity to edit them, you could have your website with company A and your e-mails with company B, for illustration. This offers you more overall flexibility as you can choose the best provider for every single one of these services and you don't have to stick to a single company. After you select a hosting company, you have to make sure that you have access to all DNS records freely as some providers have an extra fee for this function.
