The Registrar - This is where the domain is registered. For example: I have several domain names registered via Network Solutions.

The Registrar has ultimate authority of the domain name (registration, renewal, suspension). DNS Host - This is where the name servers and DNS zone and records exist. Network solutions is the registrar and if I so choose they can also host my DNS namespace (the DNS zone for my domain name - this is where the authoritative name servers are), they could also host my web site and my email if I so choose. I happen to have my DNS zone (again, the authoritative name servers) hosted at Dyn DNS. So you see that in my case there are three different entities involved: Me, who hosts my web sites and my email.
