Any active domain name that is added in a hosting account includes a number of records which allow it to perform properly. In the typical case, the name servers (NS records) show where the domain is hosted and they're 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 (e-mail server), SRV (employing an Internet domain for non-website purposes on a certain port number like Voice-over-IP), and so on. By having access to these records and by having the ability to edit them, you can have your web site with company A and your e-mails with company B, for illustration. This gives you more flexibility since you can choose the best provider for every single one of these services and you don't have to stick to one company. Whenever you select a hosting company, you have to make certain that you can access all DNS records freely because some companies have an extra fee for this function.
