SRV, which is an abbreviation for Service, is a DNS record, which permits you to use a domain name for a specific service different from a site. By setting up a couple of SRV records, you can use the domain with different companies and point it to several servers simultaneously, every single server managing a different service. You are able to specify the port number for the connection to every single machine, so there will never be any interference. You can even set individual priorities and weight for two records which are used for the very same service, but point to different servers for redundancy or load balancing. By having an SRV record you can use your domain address or a subdomain under it for a Voice-Over-IP server, for instance, and have the specific software running on various machines with different companies. Which one a client of yours will use depends on the priority and weight values that you've set.
