SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which enables you to employ a domain name for a certain service different from a site. By creating a few SRV records, you will be able to use the domain name with different companies and direct it to several servers at once, each server handling a different service. You could specify the port number for the connection to each machine, so there will never be any interference. You could also set different priorities and weight for 2 records that are employed for the exact same service, but forward to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having an SRV record you can use your domain name or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, and have the specific software running on various machines with different companies. Which one a customer of yours is going to use depends on the priority and weight values which you have set.
