Each domain name that's 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 created manually if required. For instance, the A record of a domain is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the web site is situated; the MX records show where the emails are stored, while through an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, for instance a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to set up and modify particular records permits you to have different services with different companies if, for instance, your present host provides stable web hosting, but has problems with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a certain service from a certain company. While you will be able to create and modify these records freely and with no limits as you own a given domain name, some companies charge extra to give you this option.
