Same reasons you'd bring any IT service in house rather than farm it out.

You can make it work the way you want it to. My needs may be different.

If it breaks you can fix it rather than spending an hour on hold to
talk to someone making 0.50 an hour who can't do anything but follow a
spreadsheet and 'open a ticket'

Everything needs a DNS lookup.  Having your own server can be much faster.

etc. etc.
