Having total control over your domains is something quite crucial and to be able to access and edit the DNS records for any of them is one of the things you need to look for when you search for a registration or a cloud 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 a whole set of records, like the A record, which is the IP address of the server hosting the site, and the MX records, which show the server that manages the emails for a particular domain. These records are employed if you wish to have your web site with one provider and the e-mails with another, as an illustration. You could also use a domain name for a non-website service or direct the traffic to it using special records. A lot of companies ask for an additional fee to grant access to edit certain DNS records besides the name servers.
