Each domain that's registered and hosted has a lot of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be created manually if necessary. As an example, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the site is situated; the MX records show where the e-mails are handled, while using an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, for instance a Voice-over-IP service. Being able to create and modify particular records permits you to have different services with different companies if, for instance, your present host provides dependable web hosting, but has difficulties with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a certain service from a specific company. While you must be able to create and edit these records freely and without any limitations as you own a given domain address, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.
