Any active domain that is added in a hosting account includes a variety of records which allow it to work 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 certain records set through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (email server), SRV (using an Internet domain for non-website purposes on a certain port number like Voice-over-IP), and many others. Having access to these records and by being able to edit them, you can have your web site with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for instance. This gives you more overall flexibility as you can choose the best provider for every one of these services and you don't need to stick to a single company. After you pick 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.
