Each registered domain has a minimum of 2 Name Server records which show where it is hosted i.e. by using these records you direct your domain name to the servers of a certain web hosting provider. In this way, you have both your website and your emails managed by the very same provider. On the lower level of the Domain Name System (DNS), nevertheless, there are a number of other records, such as A and MX. The former shows which server deals with the site for a given Internet domain and is always an IP address (123.123.123.123), while the second one shows which server manages the emails and is always an alphanumeric string (mx1.domain.com). As an illustration, when you type a domain address in your browser, your request is forwarded through the global DNS system to the company whose NS records the domain name uses and from there you may be sent to the servers of another company if you have set an IP address of the latter as an A record for your domain. Having different records for the website and the emails means that you may have your website and your e-mails with two different providers if you'd like.
