Each and every domain which is registered and hosted has quite a lot of DNS records - some of them are created automatically when you host a domain, others can be created by hand if necessary. As an illustration, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the site is situated; the MX records show where the e-mails are handled, while with an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, including 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 example, your present host provides good web hosting, but has issues with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a particular company. Though you must be able to create and modify these records freely and with no limitations as you own a given domain address, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.
