Each and every domain 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 created by hand if required. For example, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the site is situated; the MX records show where the emails are stored, while using an SRV record you can use a domain for unconventional purposes, including a Voice-over-IP service. The ability to set up and modify specific records allows you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your current host provides stable web hosting, but has issues with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a certain company. Though you must be able to create and edit 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.
