Each registered domain has at least two Name Server records that show where it is hosted i.e. by using these records you direct your Internet domain to the servers of a certain hosting provider. This way, you have got both your website and your e-mails managed by the very same service provider. On the lower level of the Domain Name System (DNS), nevertheless, there are lots of other records, for example A and MX. The first one shows which server manages the site for a given domain address and is always an IP address (123.123.123.123), while the latter shows which server manages the e-mails and is always an alphanumeric string (mx1.domain.com). For instance, when you type a domain in your Internet browser, your request is forwarded through the global DNS system to the company whose NS records the domain address uses and from there you may be sent to the servers of a different service provider in case you have set an IP address of the latter as an A record for your domain. Having independent records for the website and the e-mails means you may have your site and your emails with 2 different providers if you would like.
