Every domain name that is registered and hosted has a great deal of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be created by hand if required. As an illustration, the A record of a domain is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the web site is situated; the MX records show where the emails are managed, while using 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 particular records permits you to have different services with different providers if, for illustration, your present host provides good web hosting, but has problems with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a specific company. Though you will be able to create and edit these records freely and with no restrictions as you own a given domain address, many companies charge extra to give you this option.
