What server software do you have? How many servers? Do you have Exchange running?

There is a hierarchy of control for domain names.  First is the domain registrar.  You give the domain registrar the host name of your Nameservers which are where your actual DNS records are located.  Whether you manage them or not, they are usually on the name server of the company that hosts your website and/or mail server because they 'own' the IP addresses for their servers.  But they don't have to be there, just somewhere.  

Once you have nameservers for your domain name, you can change the records to point to the IP addresses or hosts that you want to use.  If you are using a hosting company for your web site and email, it is usually best to let them set it up to begin with.
