Each domain name that 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 set up manually if necessary. For example, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the site is situated; the MX records show where the emails are stored, while using an SRV record you can use a domain address for unconventional purposes, for instance a Voice-over-IP service. To be able to set up and modify specific records permits you to have different services with different providers if, for instance, your current host provides stable web hosting, but has troubles with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a certain service from a particular company. Though you must be able to create and modify these records freely and without any restrictions as you own a given domain name, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.
