Every domain that's registered and hosted has a lot of DNS records - some of them are set up automatically when you host a domain, others can be created by hand if needed. As an example, the A record of a domain address is its IP address i.e. this record shows where the website is located; the MX records reveal where the emails are handled, while through an SRV record you can use a domain name for unconventional purposes, including a Voice-over-IP service. To be able to create and modify certain records permits you to have different services with different companies if, for example, your current host provides dependable web hosting, but has problems with the email service, or you simply prefer to get a particular service from a certain company. Though you will be able to create and modify these records freely and with no limitations as you own a given domain address, a lot of companies charge extra to give you this option.
