Every single domain name that is registered and hosted has lots of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be set up by hand if needed. As an illustration, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the web site is located; the MX records reveal where the emails are handled, while through an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, such as a Voice-over-IP service. To be able to create and modify particular records allows you to have different services with different companies if, for instance, your present host provides dependable web hosting, but has issues with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a certain service from a particular company. Although you will be able to set up and edit these records freely and with no limits as you own a given domain, lots of companies charge extra to give you this option.
