Each domain name that's registered and hosted has lots of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up manually if needed. As an example, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the site is located; the MX records reveal where the e-mails are handled, while through an SRV record you can use a domain name for unconventional purposes, like a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to create and modify specific records permits you to have different services with different providers if, for illustration, your present host provides dependable web hosting, but has issues with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a certain company. Even though you should be able to set up and modify these records freely and with no limitations as you own a given domain address, lots of companies charge extra to give you this option.
