DNS for your domain name is usually provided by your registrar (the company you bought your domain name from) or your web host, but I purchase DNS services from a dedicated DNS provider.
I do this because:
1) I get better service and more features from a dedicated DNS provider.
2) Moving hosts is infinitely easier when they do not also provide DNS services.
3) Bulk managing many domain names is so much easier at a dedicated DNS provider.
I use and recommend DNS Made Easy.
