Each domain that is registered and hosted has a lot 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 name is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the web site is located; the MX records reveal where the emails are stored, while through an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, including a Voice-over-IP service. To be able to set up and modify particular records permits you to have different services with different providers if, for illustration, your current host provides good web hosting, but has issues with the e-mail service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a certain company. Even though you will be able to create and edit these records freely and with no restrictions as you own a given domain, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.
