Having complete control over your domain names is something quite crucial 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 web hosting provider. Maybe you have heard of the so-called “name servers” that show where a domain address is hosted, but below them you will find a whole set of records, such as the A record, which is the IP address of the server hosting the website, and the MX records, which show the server that deals with the emails for a specific domain address. These records are used if you would like have your website with one company and the emails with another, for example. Additionally you can use a domain address for a non-website service or forward the traffic to it using special records. Some companies ask for an additional fee to give access to edit particular DNS records other than the name servers.
