Any active domain which is added in a hosting account has a variety of records which allow it to perform properly. In the typical case, the name servers (NS records) show the location where the domain 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 like A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e-mail server), SRV (using a domain for non-website purposes on a specific port number such as Voice-over-IP), and so on. Having access to these records and by being able to modify them, you could have your site with company A and your emails with company B, for example. This offers you more flexibility as you can choose the best provider for every one of these services and you do not have to stick with one company. As soon as you select a hosting company, you have to make certain that you have access to all DNS records freely as some providers have an extra fee for this feature.
