Every domain name that is registered and hosted has a lot of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up by hand if required. For example, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the web site is situated; the MX records reveal where the e-mails are managed, while using an SRV record you can use a domain name for unconventional purposes, including a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to set up and modify certain records allows you to have different services with different providers if, for illustration, your present host provides good web hosting, but has troubles with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a particular company. Although you must be able to create and modify these records freely and with no limits as you own a given domain, some companies charge extra to give you this option.
