Having full control of your domain names is something rather important and being 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 of the so-called “name servers” that show where a domain is hosted, but below them there is also 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 manages the e-mails for a specific domain address. These records are employed if you would like have your website with one service provider and the e-mails with another, for example. Additionally you can use a domain name for a non-website service or forward the traffic to it through special records. A lot of companies ask for an extra payment to grant access to edit particular DNS records apart from the name servers.
