When you add a domain name as hosted in some account, you typically set a pair of Name Servers to point it to that particular company. On their end, 3 records are created automatically right after the domain address is added - one A record and two MX records. The former is a numeric address, or IP address, which “tells” the domain address where its site is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they reveal the server that handles the emails for that particular domain. The site and the e-mail hosting are often considered to be one thing, when they're in fact two different services. Having different records for them will allow you to have them with different companies if you'd like. As an illustration, some new provider might have superb uptime for your site, but you might not want to switch your e-mails from your current host and by using an A record to point the domain name to the former and MX records to have the e-mails with the latter, you will get the best of both companies. These records are checked when you wish to open a website or send an e-mail - in either case, the company whose name servers are used for the domain will be contacted to retrieve the A and MX records and if you've set records different from their own, the correct web/mail server will then be contacted and you'll see the needed site or your email is going to be delivered.
