Each registered domain name has no less than two Name Server records which show where it is hosted i.e. by using these records you point your Internet domain to the servers of a particular website hosting provider. This way, you've got both your site and your emails managed by the very same company. On the lower level of the Domain Name System (DNS), however, there are lots of other records, for example A and MX. The first one shows which server manages the website for a given Internet domain and is always an IP address (123.123.123.123), while the latter shows which server handles the e-mails and is always an alphanumeric string (mx1.domain.com). As an example, whenever you type a domain in your Internet browser, your request is sent through the global DNS system to the provider whose NS records the domain address uses and from there you could be sent to the servers of another company in case you have set an IP address of the latter as an A record for your domain address. Having independent records for the website and the emails means you may have your website and your e-mails with two different companies if you wish.
