Every domain name which is registered and hosted has lots of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be created manually if needed. As an illustration, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the website is located; the MX records reveal where the emails are managed, while with an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, such as a Voice-over-IP service. To be able to create and modify specific records permits you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your present host provides dependable web hosting, but has difficulties with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a certain service from a certain company. Even though you can set up and edit these records freely and without any limits as you own a given domain, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.
