Having 100 % control of your domains is something quite important and to be able to access and edit the DNS records for every one of them is among the things you should 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 you will find a whole group 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 e-mails for a certain domain name. These records are employed if you wish to have your site with one service provider and the emails with another, as an illustration. You may also use a domain for a non-website service or forward the traffic to it through special records. A lot of companies ask for an additional payment to give access to edit specific DNS records apart from the name servers.
