Each domain name that's registered and hosted has a great deal of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up manually if necessary. As an example, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the web site is situated; the MX records show where the emails are handled, while using an SRV record you can use a domain name for unconventional purposes, for instance a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to set up and modify certain records enables you to have different services with different providers if, for illustration, your present host provides stable web hosting, but has troubles with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a specific company. Even though you will be able to set up and edit these records freely and with no limits as you own a given domain name, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.
