Any active domain name which is added in a hosting account features a number of records which allow it to perform 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 specific records created through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e-mail server), SRV (employing a domain address for non-website purposes on a specific port number like Voice-over-IP), and so on. By having access to these records and by having the ability to modify them, you could have your website with company A and your emails with company B, for example. This gives you more overall flexibility because you can pick the best provider for each of these services and you do not have to stick to a single company. When you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely as some providers have an additional fee for this feature.
