Every domain name which is registered and hosted has quite a lot of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be created by hand if required. For example, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the website is situated; the MX records show where the emails are stored, while through an SRV record you can use a domain name for unconventional purposes, including a Voice-over-IP service. Being able to set up and modify particular records permits you to have different services with different providers if, for example, 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 can set up and modify these records freely and without any limitations as you own a given domain, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.
