Having full control over your domains is something really crucial and to be able to access and edit the DNS records for each of them is among the things you have to look for when you search for a registration or a shared website hosting provider. You might have heard of the so-called “name servers” that show where a domain address is hosted, but below them you will find a whole list 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 handles the emails for a particular domain. These records are employed if you would like have your website with one 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 through special records. Some companies ask for an extra fee to give access to edit particular DNS records besides the name servers.
