Every single registered domain name has at least 2 Name Server records which show where it is hosted i.e. by using these records you direct your domain to the servers of a specific hosting provider. In this way, you have got both your website and your emails managed by the same company. On the lower level of the Domain Name System (DNS), nevertheless, there are a number of other records, such as A and MX. The first one reveals which server handles the site for a given domain name and is always an IP address (123.123.123.123), while the latter reveals which server handles the e-mails and is always an alphanumeric string (mx1.domain.com). As an example, any time you enter a domain name in your web browser, your request is forwarded through the global DNS system to the company whose NS records the domain uses and from there you could be forwarded to the servers of another service provider if you have set an IP address of the latter as an A record for your Internet domain. Having separate records for the website and the e-mails means you could have your site and your e-mails with 2 different companies if you wish.
