Any active domain name that is added in a hosting account has a variety of records which allow it to function 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 set through the hosting company like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (email server), SRV (using a domain for non-website purposes on a particular port number such as Voice-over-IP), and so on. By having access to these records and by being in a position to edit them, you could have your website with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for illustration. This offers you more flexibility because you can pick the best provider for every one of these services and you don't have to stick with one company. After you choose 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.
