Any active domain which is added in a hosting account has a variety of records that allow it to perform properly. In the general case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the Internet domain is hosted and they are set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are certain records set through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e mail server), SRV (using a domain name for non-website purposes on a certain port number such as Voice-over-IP), and many others. Having access to these records and by being in a position to modify them, you can have your site with company A and your emails with company B, for illustration. This gives you more flexibility as you can pick the best provider for every single one of these services and you do not have to stick with a single company. Whenever you select a hosting company, you have to make certain that you have access to all DNS records freely because some providers have an extra fee for this feature.
