Each domain that is registered and hosted has lots of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up by hand if required. 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 using an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, including a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to set up and modify particular records permits you to have different services with different providers if, for illustration, your present host provides dependable web hosting, but has troubles with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a certain service from a specific company. While you must be able to set up 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.
