When you add a domain as hosted in some account, you normally set a pair of Name Servers to point it to that particular provider. On their end, 3 records are set up automatically when the domain address is added - one A record and two MX records. The former is a numeric address, or IP address, that “tells” the Internet domain where its website is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they indicate the server that deals with the emails for that particular domain name. The site and the email hosting are generally considered to be one thing, when they're in fact two different services. Having separate records for them will allow you to have them with different providers if you would like. As an example, some new service provider may have exceptional uptime for your website, but you might not want to switch your e-mail messages from your current host and by employing an A record to point the Internet domain to the first and MX records to have the e-mails with the latter, you could get the best of both providers. These records are checked when you wish to open a site or send an e-mail - in any case, the company whose name servers are used for the Internet domain will be contacted to retrieve the A and MX records and if you have set records different from their own, the correct web/mail server will then be contacted and you're going to see the needed site or your email is going to be delivered.
