An SRV record is a DNS record, that is used to point a domain to a third-party server and employ it for a service different from a site. This can be a Voice-Over-IP server, a video streaming service, an instant messaging system, etc. When an SRV record is created, you are able to specify an Internet Protocol the domain address will use and the port, which will be used to connect to the remote server. Additionally, in case you have numerous SRV records for the exact same service, you can set various priorities and weights for every single one of them, allowing you to send out the load between many machines. Such a record will enable you to use the same domain address or subdomains under it with different companies, so you can employ it for different purposes even if you are not able to get all the services from one service provider.
