Having complete control over your domains is something very necessary and being able to access and edit the DNS records for any of them is one of the things you should look for when you search for a registration or a cloud website hosting provider. Maybe you have heard about the so-called “name servers” that show where a domain is hosted, but below them there is also a whole group 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 e-mails for a certain domain name. These records are used if you wish to have your web site 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 through special records. A lot of companies ask for an additional fee to provide access to edit particular DNS records other than the name servers.
