Each registered domain name has a minimum of 2 Name Server records which show where it's hosted i.e. by using these records you direct your domain name to the servers of a certain web hosting provider. This way, you've got both your website and your emails managed by the same service provider. On the lower level of the Domain Name System (DNS), nevertheless, there are a number of other records, like 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 second one indicates which server manages the e-mails and is always an alphanumeric string (mx1.domain.com). For example, when you type a domain address in your browser, your request is directed through the global DNS system to the company whose NS records the domain address uses and from there you will be forwarded to the servers of another company if you have set an IP address of the latter as an A record for your domain address. Having different records for the website and the e-mails means you may have your website and your e-mails with two different companies if you would like.
