Any active domain name that is added in a hosting account has a number of records that allow it to function properly. In the common case, the name servers (NS records) show where the domain name 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 address for non-website purposes on a specific port number like Voice-over-IP), and many others. Having access to these records and by having the capacity to modify them, you can have your website with company A and your e-mail messages with company B, for example. This offers you more independence as you can choose the best provider for every single one of these services and you don't need to stick with a single company. When you pick a hosting company, you have to make sure that you can access all DNS records freely as some companies have an additional fee for this function.
