Every domain which 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 manually if needed. For instance, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the website is situated; the MX records reveal where the emails are stored, 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 enables you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your current host provides good web hosting, but has difficulties with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a certain company. While you can set up and edit these records freely and without any limitations as you own a given domain address, many companies charge extra to give you this option.
