Having full control over your domains is something quite crucial and to be able to access and edit the DNS records for every one of them is among the things you need to look for when you search for a registration or a website hosting provider. You may 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, for example 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 name. These records are used if you want to have your website with one company and the emails with another, for example. You may also use a domain address for a non-website service or forward the traffic to it by using special records. Some companies ask for an extra fee to give access to edit specific DNS records other than the name servers.
