Each and every domain that is registered and hosted has a great deal of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up manually if required. For example, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the site is located; the MX records reveal where the e-mails are stored, while through an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, for instance a Voice-over-IP service. Being able to set up and modify specific records allows you to have different services with different providers if, for illustration, your present host provides dependable web hosting, but has problems with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a certain company. Though you must be able to create and modify these records freely and without any limitations as you own a given domain address, many companies charge extra to give you this option.
