Whenever you add a domain name as hosted in some account, you usually set a pair of Name Servers to direct it to that specific company. On their end, three records are created automatically the moment the Internet domain is added - one A record and two MX records. The first one is a numeric address, or IP address, which “tells” the domain where its website is, while the other two are alphanumeric and they reveal the server that deals with the emails for that specific Internet domain. The site and the e-mail hosting are often thought to be one thing, when they're in reality two different services. Having independent records for them will permit you to have them with different providers if you would like. For instance, some new provider might have fantastic uptime for your website, but you may not want to switch your e-mails from your current host and by employing an A record to point the Internet domain to the first and MX records to have the emails with the second, you can get the best of both companies. These records are checked whenever you want to open a website or send an email - either way, the service provider whose name servers are used for the domain address 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'll see the needed site or your e-mail is going to be delivered.
