Having complete control over your domains is something quite important and to be able to access and edit the DNS records for every one of them is one of the things you should look for when you search for a registration or a website hosting provider. Perhaps you have heard about the so-called “name servers” that show where a domain address is hosted, but below them there is also a whole group of records, such as the A record, which is the IP address of the server hosting the site, and the MX records, which show the server that deals with the e-mails for a specific domain name. These records are used if you would like have your website with one provider and the emails with another, for example. You could also use a domain address for a non-website service or direct the traffic to it through special records. Many companies ask for an extra payment to give access to edit particular DNS records apart from the name servers.
