Every registered domain has a minimum of 2 Name Server records that show where it's hosted i.e. by using these records you point your Internet domain to the servers of a particular web hosting provider. This way, you have both your website and your emails managed by the very same service provider. On the lower level of the Domain Name System (DNS), however, there is a variety of other records, like A and MX. The former shows which server deals with the site for a given domain name and is always an IP address (123.123.123.123), while the second one shows which server handles the e-mails and is always an alphanumeric string (mx1.domain.com). As an example, whenever you enter a domain in your browser, your request is directed through the global DNS system to the company whose NS records the domain uses and from there you could be directed 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 name. Having separate records for the website and the emails suggests that you could have your website and your e-mails with 2 different providers if you would like.
