Having complete control over your domains is something rather 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 cloud web hosting provider. Perhaps you have heard of the so-called “name servers” that show where a domain name is hosted, but below them there is also a whole set of records, like the A record, which is the IP address of the server hosting the website, and the MX records, which show the server that handles the emails for a specific domain. These records are used if you want to have your web site with one service provider and the emails with another, as an illustration. You could also use a domain for a non-website service or forward the traffic to it using special records. A lot of companies ask for an extra payment to provide access to edit particular DNS records apart from the name servers.
