Each domain 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 created by hand if required. As an example, the A record of a domain name is its IP address i.e. this record reveals where the website is situated; the MX records reveal where the emails are managed, while using 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 certain records permits you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your current host provides stable web hosting, but has difficulties with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a specific service from a particular company. Though you should be able to set up and edit these records freely and without any restrictions as you own a given domain, lots of companies charge extra to give you this option.
