Any active domain name which is added in a hosting account features a number of records that permit it to function properly. In the common case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the domain name is hosted and they're set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are specific 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 such as Voice-over-IP), etc. Having access to these records and by having the capacity to edit them, you may have your site with company A and your e-mails with company B, for illustration. This gives you more overall flexibility since you can choose the best provider for each of these services and you do not have to stick to only one company. As soon as you choose a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely since some companies have an additional fee for this feature.
