Every single domain name which 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 set up manually if needed. For instance, the A record of a domain is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the website is located; the MX records show where the e-mails are handled, while with an SRV record you can use a domain name for unconventional purposes, like 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 instance, your current host provides good web hosting, but has difficulties 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 with no restrictions as you own a given domain, many companies charge extra to give you this option.
