Any active domain name which is added in a hosting account has a number of records which allow it to work properly. In the common case, the name servers (NS records) show where the domain is hosted and they're set on the side of the registrar company, but on the lower level there are certain records created through the hosting company such as A (IP address of the website/server), MX (e-mail server), SRV (using a domain address for non-website purposes on a certain port number like Voice-over-IP), etc. Having access to these records and by having the capacity to modify them, you can have your web site with company A and your e-mails with company B, for illustration. This offers you more overall flexibility since you can choose the best provider for every single one of these services and you don't have to stick to one company. Whenever you select a hosting company, you have to make certain that you can access all DNS records freely because some providers have an extra fee for this feature.
